There is a default Setup tool that should allow you to complete the initial configuraiton:

If you scroll down the article shows you how to run this from command line. If you want to use the GUI take a look at a few youtube videos for the ASA devices, the default configuration over all ASA55XX should be the same, only the gui changes slightly.

Hi that reference above is for IOS - this is very different to ASA (Finesse) Operating System?

Be aware you are running old (Pre 8.3) code so your nat command will be different (old style), if you post some basic details (i.e a sudo public ip address, mask, gateway, and internal LAN addresses one of us will knock you up a simple config to get you started :)
