Linear Bearing Platform

What is the easiest / recommend way to achiever horizontal motion with this setup. For ex, if I just want the platform to move back and forth on the rails ? Do you have plans for a screw drive or is there a screw drive that works with these ?

We do not have any lead-screw or ball-screw drives at this time.
We do have toothed belts: http://www.adafruit.com/products/1184
and pulleys: https://www.adafruit.com/index.php?main ... h&q=pulley
that work with our stepper motors: https://www.adafruit.com/products/324
