    Won't work very well (if at all). Better to use a USB to IDE adapter.

    I doubt seriously that it will work. The specification for IDE is 18 inches, although 24 inch IDE cables are prety common.
    There is a company that will make IDE cables as long as you want, but wil only guarantee them to work if they are four feet or shorter.

    Get a USB enclosure for the drive.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
