Thank you! You provided some terms I needed to use for searching.
Also, I stumbled across these specific instructions in a link from SparkFun:http://dlnmh9ip6v2uc.cloudfront.net/dat ... rface3.pdf
Except for the prototyping board where I would start off using a breadboard, it was quite helpful to me.
(I haven't built this yet, so I don't know exactly how well it works.)
