Connecting Mac g5 to existing wireless network using Airport Express

Hi ... have been lucky to be given a g5 2004 which I understand does not have an airport card. Went to PC World yesterday and was sold Airport Express as a means of connecting. However before proceeding have been doing some research and it would appear that I need an airport card in order to connect. Is this correct or is there another way around the problem? All other computers in the house are PC's ...
First Mac we have had so any help anyone can give would be great. Am reasonable it literate so if there are ways around having an airport card ...
Anyway ... in anticipation ... thanks

Yes, you would need an airport card to use the express.
No, there are no ways around the requirement of having a wireless card in your computer in order to connect to a wireless network.
I'd take the express back and buy yourself an ethernet cable for connecting to the G5 to the router you already have.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
