As per my older post... currently have an old iMac G3 266Mhz...except the CD-Rom died and I broke the cable it used...

Getting a replacement CD-Rom...except with no cable. Where (in Australia preferable) can I get one, and is it possible to make one myself, either by modding a cable, bending pins (:P) etc...

It might have been connected by SCSI cable or IDE cable. My Powermac G3 had a SCSI Zip drive and an IDE CDROM.
