I ended up buying a "ThinkPad IDE Adaption Kit For Dock I and Dock II", as I assumed that was required to convert the 60 pin connector to a standard IDE connector, but this also has a 60 pin connector on both sides of it. According to the manual, this is only actually required for the 760E/760ED/760EL/760ELD.
I've searched Google/eBay all I can for both the listed part numbers for the cable as well as for a '60 pin IDE cable' and have found absolutely nothing. Does anyone have any idea about what these were/how to get one/if I can build one if I had the pinouts?
For reference, two pictures:

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
You mean figure out the pinout for a real IDE cable?
Because the problem is the "IDE" header on the Dock I/II is a 60 pin header ... sure, I could probably pull it apart, find the IDE controller, and reverse engineer the cable from the pins ... but so much work, and somebody must know something about this 60 pin IDE cable? This couldn't have been the only product they actually used it on?
