    Hi i was recently given a motorized pan an tilt camera mount. the problem i have is it didnt come with the connector plug to power or control it nor a control device. I own a arduino duemilanove and was wondering how i would go about powering and controling the mount with my arduino. I have a fairly basic knowledge of electronics so if someone can please explain in simple terms and the parts i would need it would be much appreciated. I have included a link to the mount manual witch has the pin/plug diagram. Thanks.

    P.s the person i got mount off mentioned he used a pc parrallel relay board to control it but i have no clue how to wire it up using my arduino. heres the link to the relay board. http://www.electronickits.com/kit/complete/elec/ck1601.htm
