Hi Folks,

I'm trying to get my mini to work with a 128x64 GLCD based on the KS0108 chip.  The GLCD i'm using is the one available from Sparkfun (http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=710).  There is a decent write up in the doc links from Sparkfun and also from links available at the arduino forum (http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/GLCDks0108). 

I'm still pretty new to the arduino & wiring world so have a few questions
1. I thought I'd check to see if anyone else has already done this to save the extra effort Wink
2. The arduino library is largely hardcoded to specific pins/ports but I can't find a schematic for the mini to figure out what ports on the 128chip line up with which ports on the mini.  Is port0 on the Wiring board PORTA?  or how does that line up work?
3. Similar question - are there certain ports that would be recommended for the 8bit block on the wiring that wouldn't be used for other things?
