Pix Firewall 6.x to 7.x configuration change

We just purchased a Cisco 5510 ASA running v. 7.x to replace an old Cisco PIX 520 we've had set up for ages.  ALthough I know the 6.x syntax it turns out that it is very different from the 7.x syntax.

Access-List commands work fine  but not my static commands, route commands, how do I name an interface  (i.e. inside / outside)  and forget about my VPN configuration.  ERROR / ERROR / ERROR  Here are some examples of what I have that I can't seem to get to work.  IP's are all changed to protect the innocent:

route outside 1

http inside

static (inside,outside) tcp smtp smtp netmask 0 0
static (inside,outside) tcp 3389 3389 netmask 0 0

I'm getting errors specifically with anything that uses inside and outside in the config   like
p1fw01(config)# telnet inside
ERROR: % Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Cisco actually has a conversion tool to help

Otherwise, upgrade the pix to 7.0 and the upgrade process will automagically convert the config, then you can copy/paste into the ASA
please execute "sh nameif" and kindly verify that interface has the name as "inside". otherwise we dont see any issue with commands
it works well and syntax is correct.
please let me know, thanks!

Unfortunately the 520 won't support 7.x or I would just  update that one and copy the config over to the ASA - Unless I'm totally mistaken.
The 520 might if you have enough DRAM and flash. Can you post "show ver" from the 520?
