    Any of the spare PCI slots is fine, although I'd probably put it in the end slot so the graphics card and modem have plenty of room.

    If it's Windows, just chuck it in and start up the computer. You may have to change some settings in the unlikely event that your network does not use DHCP.

    If it's Windows
    well as far as i remember with linux it's pretty much the same, it simply finds new hardware once the system is up.
