PIX 501 - NAT/PAT Query



I am having some difficulty with configuring a PIX 501. I am very new to Cisco equipment and am sure that I am missing something very basic.

I have configured the device to the best of my abilities but it is still not working.

The PIX is sitting behind my DSL modem which is

PIX outside:

PIX inside: (running DHCP)

From the PIX I can ping WAN IP's (eg. google - OK and also (dsl modem), and also internal addresses on the subnet. I cannot however from any devices on the subnet communicate with the outside world.

I am sure there needs to be some form of NAT/PAT/something to allow 'inside' and 'outside' interfaces to communicate.

I have tried all kinds of combinations but with no success. If possible could someone review my configuration below and offer some advice?

Thanks in advance!
