Hi Sherpaj-ga, 

What a nice gesture to turn over a nice laptop to a school. The slots
you refer to are PCMCIA slots, and from what I read any type II PCMCIA
type II modem should do just fine. I shopped online a little bit and
located a bunch of $50 units, which is about 1/4 the price of your
laptop. I jumped over to and found a bunch of them with But
It Now prices under $10.

I've actually found your specific laptop for sale with this specific modem in it.

It is $4.25 and offers free shipping. There are 3 days left on this auction.

Please feel free to request a clarification before rating this question.

I'd like to repeat what a truly warm gesture it is to share you extra
technology with a local school.

Best of luck,

Hi Sherpaj, 

No problem with links
Is a little more expensive, but comes with two different cable
connects, one for phone cord connection and one to plug into a phone
box directly.
$19.95 + $9.00 shipping
"Compatibility: Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP; Fits either 16-bit PCMCIA
or 32-bit CardBus Type II slot."
This one includes the cable connection and is a little more reasonable.
$4.99 + $10.00 shipping
"Supports Win95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, XP, Linux, DOS, WIN 3.1, WFW 3.11,
Netware, Packet - XP divers can be downloaded from Belkin's website"
Needs no cable, rj-11 is integral part of card.
reasonable price $12.99 + $8.00
"Compatibility: WINDOWS 95/98/ME/2000/XP Mac"
Needs no cable rj-11 is integral part of card.
$7.00 + 8.00 shipping
"Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP"

I didn't include any online stores because the prices all started over
$40 for the same modems.
