I think my problem stemmed from trying to connect the cable without removing the fans.  I removed the fans,, reseated the cable on the drive end, remounted the fans, and it worked perfectly.  BTW, the cables are two different lengths, so there is only one way to connect them.  Thanks for all of the help!

@LukeCain  you know your post made me curious and I pulled one of the test G5s just to see if the cables were of different leghts. In my case they were not, meaning the 2 cables are absolutely identical. The reason they fit is that the 2 sets of connertots (on the motherboard and on the drive cage) are spaced out in such as way so that both cable reach to the corresponding connector on the opposite side - by "side" I mean this: one side is the motherboard and the other is the drive cage.

Interesting that in your case the 2 cables were of different lenghts.
