Mini PCI

So, I was looking for a wireless lan unit when I found a great deal, at something like 5$+pp I got one.
Perfect, now it's arrived and it's looking good, a tad smal maybe, but that's no problem...
It's no problem?
I sure hope so, cos I got a miniPCI wlan and I'm wondering if it would be easy to just install on my pc? I don't think I got any minipci slots, actually I never herd of it, so I'm going to need a bit of info.
Anything you can tell me is great

I guess I made the question too hard to spot

The question is, will a mini pci card fit in a regular pci slot or will I need some sort of an adapter.
You should use a blanc lightbulb for your car.

An adapter is needed.

Same as my headlamp!

I found such a long time ago for 15 bucks but passed on it since a PCI wifi card was the same price. Or rather I sold the minipci card for 15 which made my 20 buck pci wifi card about 5 bucks.
