    You'll probably have to go ADC to DVI (Belkin makes one for about $30) and from DVI to VGA. ADC was only out there for a short while, so at this point, the options may be limited.

    Heh. Sometimes I forget how behind the times I am.

    I have the Belkin ADC to DVI adapter, works really well. $22.61 here:

    From there it's just a hop, skip, and $1.31 to VGA:

    Also know that Ebay is THE place to find adapters of any kind. Ones that will cost $20-30 in stores can often be found for $4-10 with free shipping.

    Yep. Found both for pretty much those amounts on Amazon last night. Ebay prices were ~ $30 for the ADC/DVI.

    Should be set now.

    I'm still looking for an Etch-a-Sketch to VGA adapter...but yeah, being behind the 'times' can be frustrating in the digital realm.

    OK. Sorry to be a pest about this piddly nonsense but..... I got the two adapters today. The Belkin ADC to DVI seems right (packaging says it's meant for G4, which I have), but the DVI to VGA doesn't fit. From searching I've found two different DVI to VGA versions. 24+5 (which seems to be the one I got, and doesn't match), and 24+1 which seems to be missing two vertical tabs to the right of the horizontal one. Will the 24+1 do the job, or is there another one I'm not finding?

    Here's a shot of the DVI side of the Belkin cable.

    I believe the 24+1 should do the trick. You can check the DVI cable for your monitor to confirm, i.e. compare it to the photo of the 24+1.
