    Have a look at the arduino websites tutorial on the display.

    You can wire it up as they have shown in the diagram. You will need to use an LCD that is based on the HD44780 controller.

    You will need to load the 4bit LCD library per the instructions.

    Using the library, you will find it very straightforward to use the function calls provided in the library.

    I believe you will find the LCD4bit library will be more than up to the performance you seek including the multiple screens.

    Actually there is a "Hello World" example already available in the Arduino-0022 version that is currently available for download.
