Powerbook G4 wireless n upgrade

I would like to upgrade my 17" Powerbook G4 to wireless n, but I'd like to upgrade the internal airport extreme card instead of using a PC Card adapter.

Are there any options for this?

Will this airport extreme card from early model MBPs work?

my specs:
17" pwrbk Hi-res
1.67 G4
late 2005 model: Powerbook 5,9

I believe that it won't work (a far as I know there is no internal upgrade), the only option is a PC Card (as you mentioned) or a USB Dongle.
