IBM T40 WIreless card

I just got a T40 off Ebay that did not have a wireless card.     Model number 2373 - 7CU

I still have my old T40 and took it apart.   It has a Cisco Aironet wireless card.   2373 - 75U

Several questions:
1) There are some thin, flexible tabs underneath covering the screws. Specifically, with the 7CU, there are tabs right along the bottom edge.  Do I break them off?

2) Like I said, my broken T40 had a wireless card: the Cisco AirnetMP 350 (Small print... maybe it's 1350)
             a) Will this card work on a 2373 - 7CU?
             b) There are two wires going to the cisco card.  How do I remove them?   I tried to gently pull off the lead with no luck.
             c) I also have a T60.  Would the wireless card from THIS one work?

card should work
the wires lift up - towards you, use needle nose pliers and pull on the plug not the wire.
the tabs on the screws dont matter
card from t60 probably work as well

Thanks, Wolfcamel.  My T60 is also broken.  Given the choice, which wireless card would you use (the one from the T60 or T40), or is there any appreciable difference?    

Just to be clear, I can break off those tabs?

Thanks for the fast response.
