Wireless network setup


hi,
I am a linux newbie.
I got a new wireless card (Adaptec Wireless PCI v2.5) and am trying to setup internet on my linux box(slackware 9.0).
Can somebody guide me step by step for setting up the network!
I tried "iwconfig" and set the essid and the wep key but
iwconfig eth0 ap 00:02:xx:xx:xx:xx returns "invalid argument"

Is there something that iam missing here.
Any suggestions/advice is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

I got it to work after going through the mails in the forum.
This is what I did--
/sbin/modprobe hermes
/sbin/modprobe orinoco_pci
/sbin/modprobe orinoco
ifconfig eth1 up (i have a realtek network card as eth0)
iwconfig eth1 essid urnetessid
iwconfig enc wepkey
dhcpcd eth1

-thats all!
If u r using rh or any other distros ..might want to try dhclient eth1 instead.
Thanks
