if you are talking about changing the default route that the PIX uses to connect to the Internet, then:

route outside 0 0 x.x.x.x

where 0 is an abbreviation for 0.0.0.0 (ie. all traffic)
and x.x.x.x is the IP address of the router that your PIX is to send traffic to.

Ok, Thanks
One more thing
I have a bad route in the routing table and need to clear it.
I did find the clear route command but can't seem to get it to work.
I am typing in:
Clear route outside xxx.xxx.xxx.4 255.255.255.0 xxx.xxx.xxx.6 1
Is that the correct syntax?
I am at the pixfirewall(config)# prompt when issueing this command.

using the "clear route" command will remove the route statement from the config file. I thought it should remove it from the routing table (ie. RAM) as well, but there is no mention of this happening in the doco. I would suggest just remove if from the config, then schedule some downtime to reboot the PIX. The 501 only takes about a minute to restart, so it won't be much of a disruption.
