Haven't heard of the command "show tac" but I also haven't run any PIX newer than 6.3.

I have always used write terminal (which is the same as show running-config) and have never had any problems restoring a config.

Though re-reading your question, are you simply trying to back the config up? if so see my website here http://www.petenetlive.com/Tech/Firewalls/Cisco/backuprestore.htm

The command is "show tech".  You don't need this for backup.  This is specifically for trouble-shooting problems.

Make sure that any changes that have been made are committed by typing:
  copy run start

Then do a "show start" to get the complete config.

Hi, you should use 'sh running-config all' to list the complete configuration, including default settings.
