Hey A.,

In Pix 6.x, files are not directly accessible or readable and there are no folders or directories to navigate (sort of a "closed" flat file system). In fact, it doesn't even have filenames. It use index nubmers 0-5. 0 is the OS image and 1 is the startup config among others. You can do a 'show flashfs' to check on this.

Just use your terminal editor to get the config. Forget about the os image..just download something newer but stable. In Pix 7.x, the flash file system is different and you can administer your files and config in many ways. I mean your 'copy flash tftp' would work. ;}
