Coping with multiple wireless and wired nets.

Ok. I installed 5.2.1 on a laptop the other night, which went quite
nicely. During the install, it detected my wireless card, just fine. It
wanted to dhcp for it, but that (correctly) failed, as my net uses wep.
So, it punted me to the manual interface configuration screen, where I
was easily able to tell it everything it needed to successfully get me
on the air. I was a happy camper.
1) How do I tell the system the ssid, wepmode, and key, and then have it
get everything else via dhcp, during boot up?
2) How do I *easily* handle multiple wireless nets? I will be using the
laptop on a number of them.
3) How do I tell the system to cope, when I put a wired card in, instead
of a wireless card, and I just want it to get me on the air with dhcp?
