Hi at all,
a friend of mine, has an old working IBM PS/2 model 30. She needs to change
its broken hard disk that is a IBM 20mb Part number 72x7568, model WDI-325Q.
The broken hard disk is similar to this: and its cable is like this
one: Well this cable has
44pins and it cabled in different way from modern IDE cables. THe 44pins
cable is described here: 

Well the question is: if she can't find a working used hard disk for this
machine, how could she solve for connect a new hard disk (i suggested to use
a ide to cf adapter with a 32mb max cf card, but the ide connector has 40
pins so it should necessary to realize a specified cabling from the ps/2
hard disk connector to the ide to cf card connector)

Thanks in advance
