Description of problem:
There appears to be a but in ifup-wireless that will not allow an open
wireless key to be set properly. The error appears on line 62 where
$KEY is in quotes. Removing the quotes fixes the problem.
If keys-eth1 contains KEY='open s:somekey' the wireless card won't be
configured properly. If it takes the form KEY1='open s:somekey' then
all is good.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Configure keys-eth1 with open wep
3.Bring the card up
Actual Results: open wep not configured.
Expected Results: open wep configured
This is fixed in FC3.
