It can be done although most cards I've seen that do this ship with the PCMCIA adapter. I'd e-mail or call Linksys and see what they say.

this one doesn't come with it's PCMCIA adapter,
hmm .. maybe because it's second hand
anyway i already have 2 CF PCMCIA Adapter.
How am I to know whether my PCMCIA card support CFII or not? it's nowhere written

I *think* Type 1 and 2 are different sizes. Don't take my word for it though. You'll want to check linksys.com for Windows 9x/2k/xp drivers for the card you have too.
