Outside = 0
DMZ = 50 (actually any value between 1 and 99 will do... 50 give you room to play :)
Inside = 100

I probably should have put this in the initial question so i apoligize. What does this number 0-100 represent? I want the dmz to be as secure as possible, only a few people will actually be accessing the box in the dmz by way of vpn. So if i put it at 50, what does it mean that i have room to play?

the number 0-100 represents the trust-worthiness of the interface... 0 being least trusted and 100 being most trusted. These security levels are used by the PIX's ASA to determin what traffic can go where.

Read up here... these will explain it much better than I can...
