IMO you just need the pinouts and a relation diagram. so here you go:

german:

spanish (with good pictures):

english:

Hint: Some sd-card connectors have two special pins that will connect, when a card is inserted.
Use them for the sense line (pin 1 connected to pin 12), otherwise the gamecube will show a not identified/useable device, although nothing is inserted.

But if you dont have fun with the soldering iron, this would be an alternative:

Hope this helps. ;-)

No the qoob boot menu would not, but then if you put Swiss or SDLoad on your qoob flash you can go into that and browse your SD Card. Eventually I will have Swiss running as a Qoob PRO flash file

128kb is a tiny flash ;) especially when there's no code available to write to it - unless I disassemble their .ELF flasher.

SDLoad on XenoGC is the stub code to find and load it from a patched SD card (prepared with the tool that comes with SDLoad). SDLoad flashed on ViperGC is SDLoad compressed down to 40kb. :)
