It will depend on which image you install and which addons/plugins, some will fetch the keys automatically. Have your read the Idiot guide?

no i haven't read the idiots guide yet. Im not that good with satellite stuff, but i was thinking about buying a Dreambox 500s and i don't know what i need for it. i have a dish and a Kaon set box but get tired of looking for the keys and wanted to know what better but not so complex options are there

Vodas, rolfw has put it very politely as the boss around here, but I really would suggest you read (maybe even download) the Idiot's Guide very thoroughly.

I did when I first got my Dreambox. It's a very thorough document, and a credit to its authors. Reading it saved me from asking a few questions to which the best reply would have been RTFM.
