Description (partial)

This is a DOCUMENTATION bug only.

The ASA 8.2 CLI Configuration Guide - Configuring Interfaces chapter, includes 
a table (6-1) - which indicates the feature history of the interfaces.  It incorrectly
indicates that the ASA-5510 (starting with versions 7.2.4 and 8.0.4), with a Base
License allows the first two Ethernet ports (E0/0 and E0/1) to run at Gigabit speed.
This is incorrect.  One must have a Security Plus license to enable the first
two interfaces to run at Gigabit speed.

This same error is propagated to Table 9 in the Managing Feature Licenses for
Cisco ASA 5500 Version 8.2 chapter:
