Using a pix 501 6.3.3 setup vpn using wizard and cisco client 4.0.2 (D) worked great (thanks to lrmoore) but it has stopped working. now I get a message that says "can't connect to security gateway".  This is probably not difficult for someone who knows cisco but I need an answer ASAP. I am trying to connect over a dailup (using the client) to the pix (using a cable modem).

You are getting your IP address from DHCP on your PIX. Perhaps it has a new IP address, and you need to change your client accordingly?
Get on the pix and do a "show interface" to see the IP address of the outisde interface
Else maybe the cable connection is down..
Can you ping it?

Have you checked the expiration date on the Certificates tab in the Validity field?
Can you ping the workstation from the pix?
ping outside x.x.x.x
If the pix is on a cable modem, do you have a static IP? If not has your address changed?

I feel like a dumb*ss, I had to recreate the dialup connection on my laptop and windows XP turned on the internet connection firewall by default, thats why it wouldn't connect
