Depends on what you want. Internal? External? 802b? 802g? OEM?
There are many alternatives.
I have one of these EDIMAX EW-7206APG Wireless LAN Access Point sitting in a Window of a Camping trailer over 200 ft from the router. Never had a problem with it. It's connected to an iBook, it can connect to ANY computer with an Ethernet port.
Works for me.

Search eBay for pci airport. There's a couple of professional sellers there with vast quantities of third-party 802.11g PCI cards that are Airport Extreme compatible. Don't pay more than $30.
I have one in my G5 I bought from http://stores.ebay.com/the-la-guy - it was cheaper than buying the apple card and totally plug & play. No drivers needed, the system treats it like a regular airport card.
This is a lot cheaper than trying to find an original (and slower) 802.11b Airport card for your Sawtooth.
