How to configure vlans on my Cisco pix 515e

Hi Experts,

I have a cisco switch 3550 in which I will configure the vlans 10 and 20.
The VLAN 10 with ip
The VLAN 20 with ip

My PIX 515E
Will have NAT and PAT enable, I do not have a static ip address outside, I checked the configurations on how to create a vlan and I noticed that the inside E1 interface is not configure but instead they assign the VLANS as interface E1.10  AND interface E1.20 instead.
My question is:
Do I have to assign an ip address to the inside interface E1 when creating VLANS on that interface?
If I do not assign an ip address then how can I manage the PIX using SSH or telnet?

Please advise.

Yes, and you should just have to assign a static route.  
Instead of assigning an I tothe interface, create a sub interface and define whati VLAN it belongs to

ocnfig t
int e1.1
encapsulation .1q
vlan 1000
ipaddress x.x.x.x

So you mean that instead of assigning an ip address to the inside E1 interface I should create the 2 vlans on the E1?.
Do I have to assign a NAT for every vlan? so they can access the internet?

You mentioned that I should assign a static route but if my vlans are coming from a HIGHER LEVEL interface to a lower level(INTERNET) Do I still need to assign static routes?.

Your subinterfaces (vlans) are like physical interfaces, so you would need NAT for both of them.

A static route pointing to the internet is usually looks like this:

route outside ip_default_gateway
