Default Noob Question, Using a Laptop PCI card in ITX Build

There is little information on doing something like this on the net, lately i have made many posts re: building an ITX Pc. I have finally pretty much set out what i want 2 do now, Yay! Now, the last thing i need to know is for WiFi in the system, I have a spare Laptop WiFi card like this one, and rather than buying another for my itx build, i was wondering if i could stick it in there without any problems. The board has a Mini-PCI Express card in it, but I just want to make sure theyll be compatible:

The Board
The WiFi Card Likeness

If it actually had Mini-PCIe, then yes, but that barebone kit doesn't have a board with Mini-PCIe. PCI-e x1 is NOT the same as Mini-PCIe.
