I always made my own cables, but I did mention [ABOVE] that FDADAP
is the easy way to handle the cabling.
First cable that I made, I used a solderless bread-board, and looking at
both pinouts, started placing wires.
Once I saw what I was ending up with, subsequent cables were a flat 34 pin
cable, that I peeled out a few wires, and very carefully held them in
place to crimp on a 50 pin connector.
