DMinor: Have you got this combo working, yet? Nvrmnd... I went back a few pages and saw that you're holding off on by the SSD, for now.
This may be a really ignorant question on my part, but shouldn't the adapter be put in connector facing DOWN (towards the main board)? The connector for the hard drive is oriented that way, so it would stand to reason that this adapter should be installed the same. Otherwise, the contacts on the cable aren't against the contacts on the adapter.
Also, does it look like the corners of the PC board (on the ZIF connector end) could be cut or ground off to provide more room for caps?

It appears to be fine. See the pics below for the 30GB model.
