From memory, that has PCMCIA and not PC-Card.

You can't use or install PC-Card capability in that machine. There is no known method to add PC-Card to older laptops.

-> Too bad you didn't tell what card you were looking for. Sometimes the forum can help except in the case of USB 2.0 PCMCIA cards (something that does not exist.)
