Port Forwarding on the Cisco PIX 501

Can anyone tell me the command(s) to enable port forwarding on the Cisco PIX 501?  While Googling, I'm getting conflicting suggestions.

There are two things you need to enable.
1) static port map from outside IP to inside IP + port, i.e.
    static (inside,outside) tcp <public ip> http <private ip> http netmask
                                                          ^^ port               ^^ port
2) access-list entry to permit packets inbound to that public IP/port:
    access-list outside_in permit tcp any host <public ip> eq http
NOTE: "host <public ip>" can be replaced with "interface outside" if you only have 6.3(x)
Apply the access-list:
   access-group outside_in in interface outside
