That looks like a ST7920-based display (the PSB pin is the giveaway). You can drive it in serial or parallel mode. I prefer serial because it needs only 2 Arduino outputs. The standard Arduino GLCD library won't drive it, but I have a library that does, and olikraus has a more comprehensive one (search for U8glib).

From here http://arduino.cc/playground/Code/LCD
Scroll down to graphics LCD.
There are some serial library and parallel ones as well.

See if this will help: --> http://www.dfrobot.com/forum/index.php?topic=302.0 ?  It was the first hit when I searched for 12864ZB on the US Google site.

You can find my driver and some example code at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0349stdy1pui740/BJeoa_FATe. The wiring you need is described in the comments. I expect the same wiring will work with U8glib in serial mode. Your display includes a contrast pot, so you don't need an external one.
