Extending Eee PC LCD Cable? Should I? What to use?
How difficult is it to extend the LCD monitor to motherboard cable on an Asus Eee PC 701?
It is the cable in the upper right of this image:

It looks to me to be more of a round cable, which IMO should be somewhat easier to splice and solder than a flat ribbon.
What kind of cable should I use to make the connection? I've read that Cat5 might work.
Or is this a standardized connection that I can buy a pre-made extension for?
The reason I'm asking is that I'm no longer sure that my Eee PC will fit perpendicular behind the dash into a double din slot as originally planned.
