IDE cables? I think many motherboards can be found that support those.

Post a picture of the HDD, especially the backside where the connector attach. A shot of the label on the drive would be useful as well.

If the drive has two flat cables going to it is probably a MFM drive. To get the data off of it you will need a MFM controller card and a computer with ISA slots (for the controller). Also you will need to have the terminating resistor (150R) fitted on the drive.
