The antenna is located in the

The antenna is located in the top half of many laptops. its a wire with tiny connectors, plenty of different ones should work as long as they have the same connector. Just make sure to run it outside the case.

You should be able to get one

You should be able to get one off ebay. They're standard connectors, so an antenna for an HP, etc. will also fit the airport card.

Note that the modern antennas will have two connectors, one for 802.11b and one for G. If they're not labelled you may need trial and error to figure out which is which for your airport card's 802.11b.

Link, just as an example.
