VPN with PIX 506E as hub and pix 501 as clients

Am new to setting up VPN between pix-to-pix. I have a Pix 506E running PIX Firewall Version 6.3(5)and we want to use it at the HQ with five PIX 501 running IOS version 6.3 in the branches. I need help on how to get the VPN set up, any resouces I can use or any configuration examples. I intend to set them up with  static IPSEC with NAT. Any clues and examples will be appreciated.

 See the following example for a "hub-and-spoke" site-to-site VPN:

  If you want the branches to be able to talk to each other as well as HQ, you'll need to instead setup a "fully-meshed" layout, since PIX 6.x doesn't support spokes talking to each other in a "hub-and-spoke" arrangement:

   Note that the fully-meshed example uses PIXes running old 6.1 code, but otherwise it's a good example.  The only addition I'd make to *all* your PIX configs (since they're all v6.3, & regardless of which scenario you go with) is to add:  
  isakmp nat-traversal

PIX 7.x supports spoke-to-spoke communication, but it currently only runs on PIX 515/515e or above.
