old HD

I have an old HD from a Dell laptop I used to have. Is there anyway of hooking that up to my desk top PC an a temp. basis so that I can get some old files.

The old laptop HD is a IBM OEM Model DSOA-20810 E33252 S

If its possible, could you pls advise what time of HD adapter I would need?

Thanks in Advance.

Whew...didnt think it would be that easy.

Here is part 2. for another 500 points.

Is there some kind of adapter (USB, firewire) to hook this old HD to a new laptop, without removing the existing HD that is in the new laptop.

That way I could boot from the existing HD within the laptop, then plug in the old one and get the files I need.

Tks,
Lyndon
