I need to go from HDMI to VGA...For hooking up an old lcd monitor which only has vga in it.

I have a hdmi to dvi-d cable from dell which came with the pc, the old dvi to vga do not work for obvious reasons.  Can I buy a dvi-d to vga and throw it on the end of the hdmi to dvi-d cable and it work?  Or will I need to buy a hdmi to vga cable (or possibly converter)?  I've purchased hdmi to dvi cable which worked fine in the past...but not a vga.
