This one is tough. I looked up the Solar Gorilla and they make you buy a [http://www.earthtechproducts.com/vmag.html|$60 adapter]. There is a solar power "generator" from [http://www.voltaicsystems.com/bag_generator.shtml|Voltaic Systems] that costs $500, so that is spending more money if you return the Gorilla.
If you can try to make a jumper from 10 or 12 wire and [http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=111|alligator clips] and make connections on pins until you have the power you need. It may be as simple as clipping to the regular 2 prong wall plug.

If you have a multimeter this may be the way the way to test the output of the solar panel prior to hooking up to the actual computer.
 
That being said, I hope you can do it so you don't have to spend another dime!

For my money, the $20 adapter to make your reliable connection is not too shabby considering cost and effort in trying to make your own "adapter."
