PCI to PCMCIA, is it possible in linux?

I was given a PCMCIA wlan card that is supported by the linux-wlan-ng drivers, only problem is that I have a desktop and this is a PCMCIA card.

I know that there are PCI to PCMCIA conversion cards out there, but are there any that have linux drivers? and there are drivers, will I be able to install the wlan card normally or am I gona have to jump through hoops to get it recognized?

Have you checked out Linuxquestions HCL yet? I don't know where in there to look for pcmcia addapters, but it might be a start.
