Restoring PIX 501 Configurations from networked TFTP server

I’m in the process of completing the installation of our backup for internet access communication with a cable/DSL modem.  Our primary communications is a MCI T1 with a CISCO 2600 router and PIX 501 firewall.  Everything works great and I know how to access the PIX 501 for changes using PDM.  I have changed the PIX configuration to write our current configuration to our network TFTP server, and that works great.

When I change the PIX configuration for the cable/DSL using PDM, then make a backup copy of it to our TFTP server, is it possible to use PDM to restore the selected configuration (MCI or Cable) or do I have to use CLI to restore the selected configuration.  If I have to use CLI, what are the commands?

copy tftp flash:

It will then put you interactive mode, where you spsecify the source filename
and destination filename.

pix#config net

This will grab the config file, where "copy tftp flash" will want to overwrite the OS binary...

Sorry guys both of your answers appear right, so which one is correct.  I will be changing my existing configuration this Saturday for the cable modem, when I it works correctly I will save a copy of the configuration on my TFTP server and whenever we lose our comm link with MCI I will sign onto the router and restore the cable configuration, then change out the necessary cables from the PIX 501 to my hub.
