If it's just for a replacement drive and not for the speed boost of the SSD then consider an ATA-to_SATA card. Lots of them on eBay.
The card is free-standing, no slot required. Just park it out of the way somewhere; it's matchbox sized.
It takes your ATA(IDE) cable as an input and provides a SATA data and power output.
Naturally, there is a speed penalty. But it works and that's 90% of everything.
I have two of them and they work well.
