Does anyone know if its possible to add additional modules / equipment to Packet Tracer 5.0 ?

I am wanting to learn about the Cisco Pix and the Cisco 877 and they don't appear in the list to add...

many thanks

You can't add it with Packet Tracer at this time. You might consider using GNS3 (www.gns3.net) which actually runs the IOS/PIX image, the catch is you'll need to acqurie your own IOS images.

Thanks very much for that,

Since I own the hardware, I guess obtaining the IOS/PIX  images from somewhere wouldnt be that bad?....are they available somewhere ?...

Many thanks,

You need a smartnet subscription with Cisco in order to download the images. Since it will be used for learning purposes no one will give you a hard time if you download them via torrents or whatever method. There is also a tool called IOSHunter http://www.vitaltech-group.com/IOSHunter.htm (haven't used it much but the free version allows you to download some images off each platform.
