How can I connect my Laptop to my Plasma TV?

I have a Dell Latitude notebook (D600), and the Phillips PF429630A Plasma. The TV has PC input as one of the features, and supports the following connection types:
My Dell Lattitude has VGA and S-Video out.
I thought it would be as simple as plugging the S-Video straight from the TV to the PC, and then using the Alt+F8 key to toggle the screen output... apparently this doesnt work.
My guess is the Alt+F8 function only works when I use the VGA connection, so if this is the case, how can I get the S-Video to appear on the TV -OR- is there a cable out there that can convert VGA to either HDMI, Composite, S-Video, or Component?
