Problem arises when trying to configure DMZ on Cisco ASA

I have a Cisco ASA5505 that I'm trying to configure a DMZ on.  I have assigned the interface, seethe address, and set the security level.  It seems the next step is to configure static NAT.  I go to the CLI and, under global configuration mode, I create a network object using the object network command.  Once this is done, I should be under the config-network-object configuration mode, but instead I am only under the config-network mode.  The next step is define the subnet, but I cannot do this under this configuration mode.  It should be stated that my box is currently running ASA software version 8.2 (5).  Am I doing something wrong or have I left a step out??  Is this a software bug??  Someone please help point me in the right direction.

The below is an example of the how to use the commands and the prompts taken from the 8.2 software command reference.

hostname(config)# object-group network sjc_eng_ftp_servers
hostname(config-network)# network-object host sjc.eng.ftp.servcers
hostname(config-network)# network-object host
hostname(config-network)# network-object
hostname(config-network)# exit

Can you paste in the command exactly as you are typing them?
