he is getting a new one, check his list of new hardware. I'm guessing he just wants to get all the data from the old one.
In that case... either just plug it in into a friends computer which accepts IDE or buy one of those external closures. For example: Newegg.com - VANTEC Nexstar 3 NST-360U2-RD Aluminum 3.5&#34; USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Only $30 and this way you have an external harddrive too.
