    Does anyone know whether there's a wireless card that will fit the older, narrower PCMCIA slot on this Compaq? Or won't the laptop support such a card anyway? All cards so far have been the newer format and won't fit.

    Yes, the Armada 4100 is inded the machine in question on both points (WMP and wireless card), and it is running with 98 second edition. The PCMCIA slot won't physically accommodate the wireless cards I've tried.

    Yeah , it might be difficult to find a Type I PCMCIA card these days - maybe eBay ? How about a USB card ? Is the USB on the laptop 1.1 or 2.0 (enhanced) ?

    The Armada 4100 has no USB (too old). I believe a USR 2410 will "fit" but have no idea whether the laptop will actually support wireless. As long as it fits the slot and the machine recognizes the card, will it work??
