Trying to configure a wlan interface (wi0, in that case) during installation (bootonly cd) for use with wep fails with:
ifconfig: SIOCS80211: Invalid argument
ieee80211_load_module: load the wlan_wep module by hand for now.
There's no way to load the module (except if you happen to have it on a floppy CD, or rather, if you have a floppy drive at all), and it doesn't seem to exist on the bootonly CD either.
This worked Ok with 5.x, afair.
Get the i386 6.0-R bootonly ISO cd and try to install via wep-encrypted wlan.
