PIX 501 unable to go out to internet

I enabled and gave valid ip addresses to my e0 and e1.    Then I created this command:

static (inside, outside) network 0 0

e0 public ip:
e1 privateip:

Am I missing a command that's not allowing me to go out on the internet?  From my laptop I can ping my PIX??

When I attempt to do a tracert on my laptop to (which is www.abc.com by the way).  All my hops has Request Time Out

The return ICMP traffic is dropped on the outside interface by default.  You can add and ACL on the outside to enable return ICMP.

access-list outside_in permit icmp any any echo-reply
access-list outside_in permit icmp any any unreachable
access-list outside_in permit icmp any any time-exceeded

access-group outside_in in interface outside

Also, make sure you have a default route setup to your ISP.

route outside 0 0 x.x.x.x

Make sure your laptop has the correct DNS information from your ISP as well.
"static (inside, outside) network 0 0"
--why do you want this static map? and it also doesn't sense to map external to internal IP.
if you just want pass traffic from you internal with one public IP, try add following:
global (outside) 1 interface
nat (inside) 1 0 0
route outside <external Default gateway> 1
also your laptop should use as its default gateway. JFrederick is right, default ICMP inbound is not allowed, you need those ACLs to allow echo reply.

Whew, got it working.  Had to reapply settings.
>static (inside, outside) network 0 0
>e1 privateip:

You cannot map a public IP to the Inside IP of the pIX itself...
