If you are referring to physically connecting your hard drive to your desktop's ide controller, it is a 2.5" hard drive 44 to 40 pin adaptor.

If you're talking about connecting the laptop to a desktop you can used a USB Transfer cable (easiest) or ethernet, firewire, serial or parallel depending on the common ports on the machines and what you're trying to accomplish.

Rated in terms of transfer speed, fastest to slowest.

44 to 40 pin adaptor (maximum speed of harddrive - connect laptop HD to the Master Secondary IDE  cable, and your primary hard disk to the Master Primary IDE)(up to 1064 Mb/s)

USB 2.0 A to A Transfer cable, or crossover cable (if only device connected, 480 Mb/s)

Firewire crossover cable (400 Mb/s)

Ethernet network (100 Mb/s / 10 Mb/s, depending on ethernet capability)- ethernet crossover cable

Parallel cross-over cable (16.0 Mb/s).  This cable has several names, several common nomenclatures are listed below: (limited OS support, however)
LapLink Cable
Parallel Crossover cable
PCAnywhere link cable
Parallel Link cable

USB 1.x (10-12 Mb/s) USB A to A Transfer cable, also a crossover cable.
Serial - Null Modem Cable - .128 Mb/s

The 44 pin adapter and the ethernet crossover cables are the most cost effective.
