Pix 501 with version 6.3(3)

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-11-16
I have just inherited a Pix 501 with version 6.3(3)

I need to set it up for VPN quickly.
Because I am new to this I have done some research and decided to go with PPTP for ease of use because I am using a 2003 SBS.  I tried to use the VPN wizard in PDM but it gave me errors.  Anyone know what the config file should look like or a good easy book or tutorial for learning this config file stuff.  I have looked on the cisco website can't seem to find anything.

vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP accept dialin pptp
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP ppp authentication mschap
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP client configuration address local vpnusers
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP client configuration dns
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP pptp echo 60
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP client authentication local
vpdn username ******* password ********
vpdn enable outside

Any help would be greatly apprecieted.  I any one know of a good easy cisco config file tutorial that would fantastic.
