While I should be able to follow that path, the only result available is "8.2(1)" and it does not get more specific than that.  Here is an excerpt from the site:

Release Date: 06/May/2009
Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software version 8.2(1) for the ASA 5505, 5510, 5520, 5540, and ASA5550. Please read the Release Note prior to downloading this release.
Size: 15894.00 KB  (16275456 bytes)

However, Cisco also has, in a different spot (now that I notice it differently), an 8.2.1.ED and then  ugh....  Sometimes Cisco really frustrates me.

I'll be changing to vs the given me by the TAC.

You should also be able to go to suppport  > download software > security > firweall > firewall appliances > cisco asa 55x0 > cisco asa software > drill down to 8.2, and is posted and downloadable as a more TAC-posted and more thoroughly tested interim build.  It's been fixed since

contact the TAC for the files.  They set me up with version

Thanks for pointing out the Bug ID, that made the case SUPER easy for me
to describe to TAC and for TAC to just give me what I needed.
