Ibm Xseries 335 1u rack mountable server

Specs: Windows XP, 800
i just got an IBM Xseries 335 (8676-61X/Xeon) server (second hand).
the problem is that as i want to do the OS installation, i have no way of having it displayed on the monitor.
my monitor uses the common type 15 pin graphic card plug, but this server is just using a complete different type of grahic card.
in the back of this server i saw two type of graphic card (SCSI, and DVI types).
ok, i went to computers stores but couldnt find any scsi type monitor cables, and was told that even i found such cable there`s virtually no monitor out there with scsi port.
also i could not find the right DVI monitor cable to match that of this server. the DVI cables i saw in the stores has smaller port size than that of the server. the DVI port in this server is quite bigger in size.
then i looked for `gender changer` plugs (to convert the 15 pin monitor plug to that of the server) but couldnt find any.
i`ve tried many means to have a monitor connected to this server but just no way so far.

has anyone dealt with this server before?
how did you connect the monitor to it?

You need a C2T connector. Look on pages 35-36 of this manual.

Here's what you're lookin' for.
