Interfacing an Arduino Mini with an Xbee Shield

I am wanting to be able to wirelessly control an HO model train using a serial controlled motor driver made by Sparfun. http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9571 Because I am tight on space, I planned on using an Arduino Mini. Is there anyway to inface a Mini with an Xbee transceiver?

BTW, if I have this question posted under the wrong forum, please let me know, and I will repost this.

Sure. Connect power, ground, TX and RX to the appropriate pins (and power level) on the XBee.

The FIO is not much bigger, and makes connecting the XBee trivial.
