WIFI during install

I don't know if there is a better way, but I have always had to manually set my encryption key when I am doing a network install of OpenBSD. When it gets to the network setup, I just exit the install to the command-line and enter "ifconfig ath0 nwkey 0x123456789" where ath0 is your interface and 0x123456789 is your WEP key. I then restart the setup program (I don't remember the program name) - it is smart enough to let me keep my drive settings and then DHCP works.

Just in case someone needed that. If there is a better way, let me know.

[Edit - clarification that this is a network install]
