It depends on what kind of video card you have in your new mac, and what model line it is.  If it is a new Powerbook G4, then you need an adapter for the DVI to SVGA.  If it is a powermac, and you have the non-dvi video card, you can simply plug it in.  If you have a DVI only video card, then you need the DVI to SVGA adapter.

Not sure off the top of my head if the Emacs have a video port or not.
