Hi.
I recently got a nice set of toys.  Including Duemilanove328 and a four wheeler platform.  It has four motors connected to a Sabertooth motor controller (V1.02) old one.

Anyways. I just wanted to know if there was a nice tutorial in using those together.  I have managed to make the motors spin smiley But I can't control them. They just start spinning.
Here is my setup:

I have supplied 8 AA batteries in series now.  Around 10-11V since they are a little bit used.

What I want to know is what is the easiest way to control the forward/backward and steering?  Should I use a digital pin and write PWM pulses,  should I (can the Duemilanove) use analog signal from 0-5 volts or should I ( can the Duemilanove) use  some sort of serial interface?

Any sugestions?

Thanks
Simmi
