Should I just install an Ethernet card?

I have an HP Pavilion 8370 computer without Ethernet access. I need any and all info about getting access to the Internet through an Ethernet connection. I have the cables, MSN modem box, miscellaneous connectors, but no Ethernet connection. Can I install an Ethernet card? What is needed to do this?
If you have a USB port the easiest thing would be to buy a USB Ethernet card. Otherwise I see no reason why you cannot put a PCI ethernet card in and surf the net.
