There must be a mounting frame I'm missing, then. The place for the
card to plug in is a small laptopish rectangular socket, about 4mm x
20mm. There's card rails that would align a PCMCIA-sized card to mate
with the motherboard along its long edge, but unlike an Apple Airport
base station, no PCMCIA socket or anything close to resembling it.
I do have ORiNOCO cards - most are Dell 1150s, but I have one or two others.
Ah, well... it's still a cool machine for tethered use.
