pix & ASA practice

I wanted to know if there is a way I can get some familiarity with both PIX and Cisco ASA products where I don't have to buy the product, but can somehow practice and get familiar with these products?

normally you have to get ressources from cisco (not free ) but there's a project where a team hacked the IOS images of asa and make it into vamware machines but it seem's that the blog was closed due to cisco complaining .

instead you can use http://www.networkstraining.com/how-to-configure-a-cisco-asa-5510-firewall-basic-configuration-tutorial/ ,
there's a lot of tutorials that helped me in a time i need them .

Hello
GNS3 supports ASA 8.02 and can be downloaded from http://www.gns3.net/
A howto: http://www.brainbump.net/2010/03/gns3-how-to-emulate-asa-in-windows-7/
Good luck

Following the braindump that Ironmannen has provided:

I'm stuck at the initrd and kernel path.  I don't have the files for this, where can I get these from ?

Ok,

I was able to download the files from online, but now when I attempt to move the ASA I get a message to configure the ASA?

OK, got it.

But when I attempt to start it up, nothing happens?  Also, when I attempt to console into the device, a cmd window pops up for about a second then shuts down.
