How to Restore PIX 506E config

I've made a mess of a PIX configuration trying to setup a new Point-to-Point VPN.  I saved the running configuration before I started hacking at this thing and would like to restore the PIX back to that configuration.  I've done many wr mem.

Can somebody tell me the steps to replace the current configuration with the original saved configuration?  The box had several existing VPNs on it before I started too.

it's running V6.3(4)

Thanks

Bill

Hey

do you have a notepad copy of the original or a tftp copy?

Either way what I would do is firstly make a copy of what you have, then erase the config and reload.
wri erase
reload

Either paste the notepad config back in or restore it from your tftp server.
To do tftp - setup your inside interface with an ip address and follow instructions here:
