Libretto110 ct Toshiba hard drive, can I read off another pc?

I have a Toshiba Libretto 110ct running Windows 98 and it died.  I took the hard disk out and wanted to know if I can daisy chain it to another Pc/IDE controller and get the data off of it.  The connectors are different from the typical ide connection.


Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!
Paul.

I have just erased my comment... just seen waht Callandor wrote! Thats it! Way to go. I use one of those caddies. Otherwise, there could be a better option. Get yourself an external 2.5" usb caddie. This way you have an external hdd that you can plug into any usb port.... you get the idea.

i use a dn-boy - awsome device as it has caddy for pc and a pcmcia card too... so you can connect a laptop hd to both your pc and/or another laptop.
