Another idea would be to crimp another IDC connector onto the cable 
alongside the connector that's already there (the same side of any 'IBM 
twist, for example). You could pull the pin 34 contact out of the 
connector before fitting it to the cable. And of course you could use a 
header socket, not an edge conenctor, to plug directly into the 3.5" drivc.
