hdd motor

i am wanting to drive a hhd motor with ardiuno. Im wondering what is the easiest way to do so. I have ordered an l298 compact motor driver for a diffrent project, can this be used. the motor is a three wire brushless.

Do some research on Brushless DC Motor technology. That should answer a lot of questions about the motor you are looking at.
