    Post DMC50037N 40X2 Parallel LCD

    I was at the local surplus store today and they have 40X2 Optrex DMC50037N LCDs (HD44780 compatible I believe) for $19.95 CDN. Here is a link to some information on this display:
    Optrex DMC50037N Datasheet
    I am good with computers, but not great with electronics (somewhat of a disaster with a soldering iron) but I want to learn more. How involved of a project would it be to wire this display to the parallel port? Would a wiring diagram such as this one work with the display?
    I already have a Matrix Orbital 20X2 serial LCD in the car, but I want to have more info so I'm thinking of using both LCDs together. As always, any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    It's not that difficult. It should take you an hour or two.

    Actually, that is the right diagram... at first I though you said a 4x40, not a 2x40
