iBook - Airport for iBook

Ok, I've searched around in the forums for an answer, but unfortunately I didn't find one.

I have a iBook 12" G3. 500MHz machine and I was wondering if the new Airport Extreme cards will work in it?

If not, I also have a 3Com office connect (11mbs) pcmcia card, does anyone know if that will work on a mac? If so, where can I find the drivers?

Thanks for taking a look and helping me (an uber noob) out!

The airport extreme card will not fit in your iBook, you will need the original airport card, which I believe you can still find it on ebay. As for the pcmcia card, it may work on the PowerBook, not the iBook, since it does not have a slot. Dlink had a usb solution, but i am not sure if will work for any Apple products now.
