Hey Ryan,

The Airport Card and the VAIO Card both fit in. It's the Pin Out of the
Airport that's not exactly the same from what I recall.

Also, I am curious as to what wifi card that guy used on his PowerBook 2400c

The card that this post refers to is a WaveLAN card with the short PCB
layout. If you look at the WaveLAN PCB it has a break point which would
allow for this. There is also a difference is layout/placement of the chips
of the WaveLAN vs Airport just check the pics...
Here is a pic of it:
I think I found this pic awhile ago but can't recall where I found it.

God bless,
