How do you install an airport extreme card in a G4 Powerbook
(The kind that have the black keyboard)

I looked everywhere and couldn't find a write up!

Can anyone help, or know of a step by step page?
Thanks!

Well I found the write up...
And where the antenna is supposed to plug into the airport extreme card, it doesn't leave enough slack for it to actually plug in!

So what now?

Any ideas? Thanks

IIRC, the PowerBook G4 with black keys is the Titanium model, which requires the standard AirPort (802.11b) card, and won't work with an AP Extreme (802.11g) card.
