How to upgrade a PIX 515e  (IOS and ASDM)

Hi,

I am finding it hard to find a definitive guide to upgrading my PIX 515e.  I have followed the instructions on the Cisco site and even these are missing some instruction.

My PIX is currently on the following SW versions...

Cisco PIX Security Appliance Software Version 7.0(1)
Device Manager Version 5.0(4)

System image file is "flash:/image"

pix# sho flash
Directory of flash:/
5      -rw-  1966136     00:02:50 Jan 01 1993  image_old.bin
7      -rw-  5124096     00:05:29 Jan 01 1993  image
11     -rw-  5958324     16:11:17 Aug 04 2006  asdm

I want to upgrade the PIX using the following files...

pix712.bin
asdm512.bin

I have tried to upgrade using the command 'copy tftp flash' and got an error saying "Not enough space".  

Do I have to delete the files from flash first?
If so will the PIX and ASDM continue to work until I reboot?
or
Do I overwrite the original using 'copy tftp://X.X.X.X/pix712.bin flash:image'?

Also

Do I need to re-enter my licence key at any stage?

Your help is much appreciated.

Chris

copy off the current file so you have a backup....the delete the existing file from the PIX to free up space. try copy again.

after the  images ( both os and asdm image ) have been loaded , add the below commands

boot system flash:/pix712.bin
asdm image flash:/asdm512.bin
wr mem
