[driverloader] Key in non-WEP environment?

if you want to connect to a network without WEP enabled, you will have 
to remove the WEP key with YaST. It is also possible that you have to 
set an explicit ESSID as some Windows XP drivers are unable to connect 
to an access point if none are specified.

Since you will need multiple configurations, at least one for encrypted 
network(s) and at least one for non-encrypted network(s), you could try 
to use the "multiple profiles" feature if it is available in your 
version of YaST.

Please let us know if you require more assistance.

Or will I have to "double boot" -- once to get access to ifcfg-wlan0 and remove the key, then again to come up without the key?
