Basically on the Catalyst switch you need to allocate the mentioned VLANS to a firewall group. You might also need to configure SVI on the core for routing VLANS that are not routed by the FWSM. Once the FWSM has VLANs allocated to it then you need to configure it like any other PIX. This link will give you the steps you need to follow. you might want to read on first so that you understand how traffic flows within the catalysts and its modules.

I hope it helps .. please rate it if it does !!!
