    For one thing, you might have problems with wireless – that model (which I think I'm right in assuming is one of the old clamshell iBooks) doesn't support the new Airport Extreme cards. You need one of the original Airport cards, which unfortunately Apple doesn't produce any more – you can find them on ebay but they very often go for a high price.

    Jaffa's right about the wireless card -- in terms of what you need and how much it will cost.

    Some good help re: upgrading your clamshell can be found in this thread.
