How to find the chassis serial number on a PIX?

I'm trying to find out how to accurately find what command will give you the chassis serial number of a PIX.

I've seen conflicting info on the web and not which is correct. I've seen that you can execute the "show version" command but I've read that the serial number shown is not the chassis serial # (not the number that is affixed to the back of the device).

Is there a command that will provide you the chassis serial number?

sh ver will show the serial number. However when it comes to registering for service contracts you will need to pre-pad the results to get the chassis serial number. i.e. if your sh ver is 8123451234 the chassis number will be 888123451234 and if the show ver number is 4123451234 the chassi number is 444123451234.
