How do I connect an iPad2 to my 24" cinema display?

My 24" cinema display from Apple (2008) has two wires that attach to my Macbook Pro one for audio with a USB end and one for video with a mini display port. If I buy an Ipad how will I be able to connect the cinema display to the iPad? Thank you.

    Yes. It works for me. You have to get a digital AV adapter that comes with a HDMI port for iPad. Then you have to get an HDMI-DVI adapter to connect to the HDMI port. Connect the DVI cable of the 24" cinema display to the HDMI-DVI adapter and the USB end to any USB port on your computer/keyboard/hub, etc.
