I might need to install an Airport card in a G3 iBook, how easy is it to install if I bought a card?

Very simple. It goes underneath the keyboard.

Finding an original airport card will be much harder than installing it.

The latest airport cards will NOT work.

Thanks for the replies! Do you know where I can find an original card, I started using Macs around the time the first MBPs were released so I don't know much about the older systems.

They will be expensive little buggers

Craigslist is a good place to look. They go for around $80, sadly.

Well I wouldn't be using the wireless that often, would a USB wireless thing work? Keeping in mind it is USB 1.1.
