I downloaded GNS3 in order to setup a Cisco ASA lab, but I'm having the following issues:

1.  I can't seem to find the initrd and kernel paths.  Don't have the files, can someone point me in the correct direction?
2.  When I attempted to download the files above and create their paths, I attempted to drag the ASA device over, but I received a message to configure the ASA.

The gns3 site has lots of docs: http://www.gns3.net/documentation

But for starters, do you have the ASA binaries to begin with? If not, you first have to get those. Officially you get them from Cisco (login required), but if you know how to handle google........ Need I say more?
