DVI? How to Connect Monitor to MacBook?

I'm going to be purchasing this 22" Viewsonic Viewdock monitor. What type of cable do I need to buy to hook up the monitor to my white MacBook? (A link to the cable on the Apple store would be great). The info on the screen is posted in the link below.

the macbook has a mini-dvi port, so you'll need a mini-dvi to dvi adapter.

In the reviews for the Apple Mini-DVI to DVI connector it says that the cable is onyl 6 inches. Is there anyway to buy an extention? Does Apple make a longer version? Thanks.

it's only meant to be an adapter, not the actual cable you hook up to the monitor. whichever monitor you get should come with a dvi cable, but you'll need the adapter to connect it to the macbook.
