    Alright here is what I want to do. I just got a 17" apple studio display which is ADC connection. I want to hook it up the my PB but the only connector I have is the mini DVI to VGA. Now do they make a mini DVI to ADC connector or is there something I missing

    I think you'd need mini DVI -> DVI, then DVI -> ADC. I couldn't imagine the mini DVI -> DVI adapter being more than $20.

    Introducing the Apple DVI to ADC adapter, which allows you to connect any Apple flat-panel display featuring an Apple Display Connector (ADC) to a PowerBook G4, Mac mini, or Power Mac computer with DVI port.

    The combination of the new Mac mini or PowerBook G4 with a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) port and the Apple DVI to ADC adapter brings the pure-digital viewing experience of Apple's professional-quality displays to Mac mini or PowerBook users. Now you can benefit from a larger viewing area when your Mac mini or PowerBook is at your office.

    The Apple DVI to ADC Adapter is also a superb solution for Power Mac users who need extra workspace of the highest visual quality (requires Power Mac equipped with DVI port). Use it to connect an additional ADC-equipped Apple flat-panel display to a Power Mac computer with a DVI port, and you'll have the ultimate digital desktop.

    The Apple DVI to ADC Adapter offers much more than just a physical connection between a DVI port and a digital ADC monitor. It has been carefully designed to maintain the digital integrity of the video signal for the best possible viewing experience. The adapter provides an all-digital signal path between the computer and the display. It features active components that regenerate both the digital graphics and USB signals coming from the computer. This ensures delivery of the highest-quality images even at the extremely fast signal rates used by the Apple Cinema HD Display.

    A compact design enables the Apple DVI to ADC adapter to fit easily on or under your desk. This single unit includes a power supply, power cord, and DVI/USB cable.

    Or how about this?

    Do you have the 12" PB or larger?

    I just reread and looked at your sig. If you're trying to hook up an ADC display to a 15" powerbook, you don't need anything other than the DVI to ADC adapter, because 15" (since the DVI Ti model, and all aluminums) and 17" PowerBooks have full-size DVI ports.
