, this has the ability to insert a half-height PCI card, such as a 256MB video card.
Yep, those are options. Unless you are very comfortable working on PC's, I wouldn't attempt the first. Swapping out components on a laptop is very different from a desktop.
The second is a viable option, but I'd seriously consider upgrading your notebook. EBay your T42 or donate it to charity and take the write off. Then save some cash, and plop down $1K on a new R60 with a Core 2 processor, 128 MB Vidcard, faster RAM, etc.
