Default Connect a Cinema Display to a PC?

I had a question about the proprietary monitor connector with older mac monitors. I received a 24" Cinema Display from work, it's the older model with a plastic mold. I really would love to use it, but I see it has a unique connection.

Is there an adapter to connect it to my DVI output? Any help would be appreciated!

I believe older MAC monitors have oval shaped connections, rather than rectangular in newer cases as well as in DVI's. I cannot assure, but do have a look on converters. as that MAC monitor convertor must have a name, it may not work, but give it a try.
