cisco asa5505 connect to internet

I am going to a client's house. He just had comcast convert his residential account to a business account with a static public ip address with 5 spares. The comcast modem is a SMCD3G. We want to set up an asa5505 for remote access from a remote computer using the cisco vpn client.  The asa5505 is brand new and is currently at factory defaults. Let's say that the current static public ip address of the SMC modem is 175.13.xx.xx.  The current internal network address is 192.168.x.x.  Now, I understand that the SMC modem does not have a "bridged mode" so to speak, but I understand if I disable dhcp and all routing functions, it will essentially be in bridged mode, correct? Now the real question is, what commands do I need to issue to the asa5505 to allow internal computers to connect to the internet?
