    Yes use google to find the specs. your machine.

    Lucent made a good card, and as I remember, made the original Airport cards.

    Type 2= PCMCIA

    Look on ebay for WN825G PCMCIA card.

    Upgrade to at least os 9- but hey, I know people that hate to upgrade.

    Use the search function on these forums.

    For instnace this.

    Also group your requests if they are simular.

    Good luck, how is the battery life?

    The battery life is perfect....i get three solid hours of working out of it with no questions asked. I picked it up (with the 333Mhz imac in the sig too) for just over $100. not a scratch on it....not even a dead pixel....=D
