How to enable 40 bit WEP instead of 128 bit WEP

I'm currently running a Dell 8200 laptop running Red Hat 9.0 and the orinoco driver for a Netgear MA401 card connecting to a Netgear ME102 Access Point.

The ME102 is using 64 bit WEP but the MA401 is currently setup to use 128 bit WEP. How do I change the MA401 setup to use 64 bit WEP?

I think simply entering a 10-digit hex key instead of a 26-digit one will do it.
