Cisco PIX 506...Can't upgrade OS

Last Modified: 2010-05-18
We have a Cisco PIX 506 (NOT a 506E) that is running an old OS (5.2). I was told in a previous post that we should upgrade the OS to the most current (6.3). Unfortunately, we do not have a smartnet contract on it, nor can we purchase one, Cisco no longer offers them for the PIX 506 because hardware support ends for this product 5/24/2007.
Is there any way to get 6.3 on this thing to get us by until we get a newer firewall?
