is it a laptop or a desktop?....

if its a desktop look for a white slot either near the modem or near the bottom left of the motherboard.

If it's a lappy, just put it in that side slot that you can slide something into. It will be on the side of your computer.

look on the back of the computer for some screws to take the side panel off, then look at the motherboard and at the bottom facing the back, you'll find some white pci slots and on the back of the chasis, you'll see some slot covers with screws in them. you'll have to remove the slot cover of the pci slot you're going to use and then just insert the wireless pci card and secure it with the screw.
