Entering a WEP Key on Wireless NIC

I'm running Red Hat Linux 5 on an IBM Thinkpad. The laptop does not have built-in wireless so I added a Netgear Wireless PCIMCIA card. The system acknowledges the presents of the card but I'm unable to enter in the wep key to gain access to the access point.

How can I enter the wep key for my NIC? There seems to be not place on the Network GUI configuration to enter a wep key. Is there a command that I should be using?

I'm so close to getting this to work.
