Upgrading the airport Card in a 800mhz Ti powerbook

Good morning everyone.
I hope the sun is shining bright but not directly in to your eyes.
I've been doing some resurrecting of old laptops my wife has acquired over the years. most are up and running and in new homes.
I've decided to keep this really mint Ti power book and replaced the HD in it with a 160 giger.
Now I want to ramp up the wireless speeds.
After lots of research it appears the only way to upgrade this is to use the cardbus slot.

So my question is will this work:
BELKIN F5D7010 Wireless G Notebook Card

I can't find out if its compatible with a cardbus type II slot or not.

OR have any of you found something that works.

FUN
