  The LDIR 2mb Flash card will only run PIX OS < 6.0.  To run 6.0 and above
code you need the 16MB flash card.  As for the serial number, you will need to
use it to generate the activation key/license.  PIX OS is tied to the serial
number of the device as well as the license keycode you buy.  Supposedly there 
is a way to set the serial number on the flash card...but I don't know how to 
do that.  Also, the LDIR motherboard is not quite the same as the PIX mother-
board...it's a slightly older model and PIX 6.0 code will complain that it is
not designed to run on that motherboard (I actually found that to occur on a
PIX 515 I have in the lab -- other engineers were going to scrap it because
they thought the motherboard was bad since it kept rebooting complaining about
the motherboard after they upgraded it to 6.3(3)...so now I have it running
5.3 code and it works fine).
