Getting PIX 501 error.

Please excuse my ignorance, but I'm new to the PIX ballgame, but learning fast.

When booting up the pix I get this error and not sure what to make of it.

ethernet1 interface can only be set to 100full.
DHCP command failed
outside interface address added to PAT pool
.The sysopt route dnat option has been deprecated
Config Error -- no sysopt route dnat
address range overlap with interface ip address

Ok the PIX is not currently connected to the cable modem so that is why im getting the DHCP error.   Not real sure about the other statments.  The one that concerns me is the statement "address range overlap with interface ip address"

Here is my current config to help diagnose the problem.

I am not sure where those errors are coming from. I think the offending commands were ignored so you cannot see them when you show the running configuration.
You configuration looks good apart from a few missing lines if you want to VPN into it. I think if you do a "wri mem" to resave the configuration those errors should disappear.

Did you recently upgrade the PIX with the new 6.3(3) code , with the old configuration ?
