    PowerMac Combined BT/AP card install

    I have salvaged a BT/AP card from a 1.42 Ghz iBook screen which got smashed and bought a Runway board, Screws and Standoffs from VIS- http://www.applemacparts.com/. Now I want to put it in my 2.0GHz PowerMac G5. Has anyone found a guide on how to do it yet?
    Since writing this I have found the answer burried on this site see this thread http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=179232. The process is the same for a 2.3 or 2.0 GHz Powermac. The parts are cheaper if you buy them in the US ( see the link in the thread). Ideally get them shipped to a friend in the states and then get them sent to the UK ( as a gift) or you may be stung for tax and duty. My parts should be arriving today - then I can finally move my router upstairs and hopefully the reception for my MacBook Pro won't be so bad
