Well you're going to have to

Well you're going to have to pretty much completely take apart the iBook. Which I will tell you right now is a pita. They you are going to have to drill a hole in the case, oh, did I tell you this will kill your warrantie? You need to get an antenna, the guys at www.fab-corp.com can help you with that. I forget what type connector the airport card in your lappy uses. If it's a regular airport card you can go to the orinoco/lucent section of the site, if it's an extreme, no clue. I used a maxrad blade omni on my powerbook. I think they have white ones like that that would match the book a little better.
