I was trying to hook up my old Performa 6116CD's monitor to my new Powerbook (firewire) and the connection is different, they both have the same lable, on the connector and the powerbook but the size is different, the monitor's cable is bigger. What kind of connector do I need for this so I can have a dual monitor going on? That would rock.

That monitor has the Mac VGA connector, while PowerBooks have the standard VGA connector. You need an adapter, which costs about $10-$20. Griifin sells one.

Actually, the Firewire Powerbooks shipped with that same exact connector. Atleast mine did.

Macintosh for productivity.
Unix for stability.
Palm for mobility.
Windows for solitaire.
