    Hey All,

    Quick questions here. I'm planning to buy PIX-515E-R-DMZ-BUN (which comes with
    32MB RAM). I also want to use PIX OS v7.x. I read that I'll need 64MB of RAM
    to support 7.x, in "Minimum Memory Requirements":

    http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/iaabu/pix/pix_sw/v_70/pix_upgd/pixupgrd.htm#wp1032446

    So I'll also buy PIX-515-MEM-32.

    1. Will purchasing PIX-515E-R-DMZ-BUN and PIX-515-MEM-32 be enough to get PIX
    OS 7.x going? The image is freely downloadable from cisco.com, right?

    2. What kind of software upgrade limitations should I expect in the future?
    How is it determined if I can upgrade to 8.x, 9.x, etc? Is it free?

    3. Can I always count on free security patches, or is there a license I need?

    Kind regards,
    Vahid
