I'd look for a pcmcia card because older laptops tend not to support usb 2.0, usually a prerequisite for a usb ethernet adapter.

Pluggers and Slluggers (please excuse the x-post):

A teenager in my neighborhood is learning about Ethernet LANs. He wants 
to network his home desktop and an old laptop. I agreed to help, but his 
laptop does not have a built-in Ethernet port. To that end, I wonder if 
anyone has either a PCMCIA Ethernet adapter or a USB Ethernet adapter 
that they would like to donate to the cause.
