Has anyone got any practical experience of Low Profile PCI?

A mate of mine has a Dell PC and it needs a new PCI card - WiFi.

However, the PC is a small-form-factor, with a very narrow case.

So, when I look at the PCI slots on the back of the case, they seem smaller than normal PCI ones that I am used to.

A Google search tells me that it might be "Low Profile PCI" cards that I need.

So, has anyone hit this issue yet and can shed a little light.

Cheers.

I haven't seen a low profile case but I recently installed a graphics card for a friend that came with two backplates, a standard one and a low profile one. Here is a picture of a similar one,
