I'm experimenting with a couple of L298 boards from Solarbotics with the goal of driving 4 motors with the Propeller. I dowloaded the "L298-Motor" object and using the "L298MotorsTest.spin" able to confirm my hook up of two motors to one of the boards was correct. My question is what is the simplest method to modify the program to control both L298 boards; 4-motors. The "L298MotorsTest.spin" is a ramp up/ramp down test program that I use it to help me learn motor control.
Thank you very much for any advice.

You may want to check out the following Propeller book that Parallax sells:

http://www.parallax.com/Store/Books/Propeller/tabid/171/CategoryID/45/List/0/SortField/0/Level/a/ProductID/683/Default.aspx

It covers motor control, encoders, etc and would be a good reference. Happens to be on sale at the moment.
