Has anyone come across a HOWTO on swapping the Wifi card in the Aluminum Powerbooks? My reception is sub-par, and I'd like to upgrade to a 802.11n as well. TIA.

Nope. The A/B/G/N card in a new MacBook Pro is absolutely NOT compatible with a PowerBook of any kind.

N is overrated anyway. Not much better than G when we tested it out. Though in our admittedly half-assed tests, neither claimed close to its theoretical top bandwidth.
