Yes you can. But if it is directly connected with PIX, then there is no reason to set port security. It is more usefull if PIX is located in a non-secure physical environment or if it is connected vai HUB and you want to only allow one MAC address to have access to LAN Segment from that port. Following link shows how to do it.

Post your switch configuration if you have any questions.

I tried the commands in the link and when I enable port security on the switch the switch port connecting to the Pix immediately shutdown. The Pix is directly connected to the switch port.

Post your configuration from Switch. Login to switch, do enable, then do show running
Also, post output from show version

Paste your output when you enable port security, all comands you type and response.
