Can I fit a PCI WLAN card to a desktop that has only PCIe 2.0 slots?

Hi, when I browse for internal WLAN cards for my new desktop their interface is described as "PCI 32 bit", which is weird because expension slots on new desktop mobos are all PCIexpress.

I know the PCIexpress's interface is physiclly different then PCI's, and that it carries 64 bits.

So, will that work? why are those produts out there then, like Edimax's ( http://www.edimax.com/en/support_detail.php?pd_id=344&pl1_id=1&pl2_id=44
) as an example?

Do you know internal cards that with PCIexpress interface?

Thanks a lot,
