Is there a way I can let Fedora remember my WEP key, so I dont need to type it in on every start up.

Yes. The system-network-config command should show the card. If you click on it, and then click edit, there should be a place to put in your WEP key.
(If you're using the default Gnome desktop, you can probably just go to System in the menu find Network, and do it from there too. I don't run Gnome so I'm not sure of that.)

Hey guys, that's system-config-network, not system-network-config. :)

If you're really game and like this command like thingy :)
Red Hat / Fedora uses a script called ifup <interface> or ifdown <interface> to simplify the process of activating or deactivating network interfaces. The script uses parameters in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/.
The key should be in one of those files (from memory sorry I don't have a linux laptop right now) but it should be obvious, its either in the same cfg file as the interface, or a special key file, sorry can't remember specifically right now. When you use the system-config-network GUI, what it does is write that value into that text file.

Don't know if you're using Fedora 7 or 8 but here's a link for passkey annoyance for Fedora 7. Maybe if pertains to 8 also.
