how do i connect puppy to a hidden network

my school is making us use these old dell latitude d505s and they run very slow under windows xp (i think because of all of the stuff they put on these things you can't remove them because deepfreeze and other administrative restrictions are preventing from doing so

the network that we want to connect to is hidden but when i do a wireless scan to connect i get several hidden networks (but i can't tell which one is the right one) how do i connect to the network i already know the SSID and WEP key i just can't connect to it is there another way of connecting to a hidden network in puppy
