Ok... good.

If you do it wrong, you will cause serious damage
commercial adapters are readily available (Roger's, etc.)

Phooey... the wires are exactly the same... it's just a smaller connector.

If you are referring to the FDC cable, the Compaq factory cable for that
model has a card-edge connector at the drive end (for 5.25" drives); you
need a dual row header (for 3.5" drives)

I have and IDC cable that works in that port... and has 2 edge connectors and 2 pin connectors.
