If you are using a wireless card (I think WEP keys only apply to
wireless devics, right?), and you are using Fedora Core 2, you can also
click Applications --> System Tools --> Network, enter the root
password, and then highlight the active device.
Click the "Wireless Settings" tab.
You can enter the WEP key in the box provided for that. Then save it and
re-activate the wireless device.
