Yes it would help enormously if you want to use Airport as fitting was optional.

Depending on the precise model which you have not supplied, it will handle a 802.11b/g Airport Extreme Card. It may not handle WPA protocols alas.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
