How do I configure the PIX 501 to allow the necessary ports to allow Remote Work Webplace, etc.?

OK, I have read every answer on setting up Remote Web Workplace , and I have read the suggested reading by TechSoEasy (which I have found it is not -- although I love it). But, I just can't seem to be able to configure my Cisco PIX to allow the ports to point to the server if that is the right terminology. If I am reading and understanding some of it correctly, I need to open ports 25, 80, 443, 444, and 4125. My guess is port 25 is already available since I can receive email?
Currently, I am running SBS 2003 Standard with one NIC and, therefore, no firewall. I have Internet provided by Time-Warner cable with a static IP address runing through a PIX 501 firewall/router which is defaultly configured. It is set up to use PAT rather than NAT so I do not know if that is correct -- but it works fine. All of the work stations are set up to obtain their IP addresses, etc. via DHCP, and the server is the DHCP server.
So, how do I configure the PIX to allow me to access the Remote Web Workplace, Outlook and Sharepoint? Please assume I know nothing about how to configure the Cisco router and am completely stupid when it comes to using the command interface. In fact, if I had to use the command interface, I would most likely need to find a friend who can configure a PIX or have Jeff connect remotely, Jeff being TechSoEasy who always helps me a lot and most likely knows my lack of knowledge when it comes to the Cisco router and SBS. If possible, can it be done using the PIX PDM?
