PCI/internal WiFi card for a PM 8600

Some point in the past, I knew the answer to this, but it was before my recent "vacation" in Afghanistan, and is now longer stored in the gooey folds of the grey matter in my noggin...

I need a PCI WiFi card for a PM 8600 running 9.1, What are my options? IIRC only one brand was mentioned and I now I will have to search for it, but it is a necessity.

TIA

Anything with the Broadcom chipset will work with X, but not 9. For 9 you'll need to try and find an Lucent WaveLAN PCI card, or a PCI-PC Card adaptor and a PCMCIA card (and they're a lot easier to find).

so, I drop in one of these and add one of these, then I am good?

I assume I will have to add/turn on the extensions for cardbus stuff...

never heard any better, so I did pick these up a few days ago. Hopefully I will have my other 8600 Extension issues resolved by the time the parts get here...
