I'm looking to pick up a Cisco ASA 5510 from my hardware vendor but I wanted to see if anyone had any experiences with this router.  Below is an explanation of what I need accomplished.

Client Computers will be on a 192.168.2.0/24
Servers will be on a 192.168.1.0/24
FTP Server in a DMZ with IP address 10.0.0.0/24

Will this security appliance be able to handle such a configuration out of the box or will I need to setup VLANs using my switches?  

Thanks

Michael

The 5510 supports 3 interfaces out of the box. 5 are there, but it depends on the license whether or not you can use all of them. No need for VLANs unless you want them.
The ASA is identical to PIX ver 7.x so you should be very comfortable with the command line. If you have not used PIX 7.x, the ASDM gui is getting much better. I actually like the GUI with ASDM 5.22 and ASA/PIX 7.2(2)
