    i don't know where you would be able to find a min-vga to dvi adapter (or adc if it's an older cinema display) apple.com doesn't seem to carry them anymore.

    Yeah, you can't do it. Easily; I don't even know where to get those old and expensive VGA to DVI adapters anymore.

    Get a Dell display with VGA. Or get a Powerbook with minimum 64mb of VRAM DVI so you can drive an apple cinema display.

    that would be the best way to do it. you will be able to get a much better monitor for the same price as the cinema display. but you probably already own the cinema display
