Hi Mike, make sure you get the dvi to video composit adapter with the
box and pins on one end, and at the other end, is an r c a plug for a
television set.  I believe the model number is m/9267
but Cheryl gave the information regarding this sometime back, but I did
go to the apple store, and this adapter was $19.

Yes the monitor won't fit the adaptor that came with the mac mini so  
I'm going to get the mini display port to vga adaptor for it.  I  
kind've wish apple would have told me about this when I talked to them 

but I probably should have asked also smiles.  Thanks,

Mike
