Need to set up a simple Cisco IPSEC VPN client to PIX 501 firewall.  Not all that familier with Cisco's CLI.  Can anyone assist me with setting configuring the the VPN on the PIX using  Cisco PDM?

Which version of PDM? The newest one has a slick wizard to create the VPN.
Else, here's a good command-line guide
