I'm building a robot using an Arduino UNO and the standard Arduino Motor shield.

I have two 9-12V DC motors. I'm open to the possibility of using servos, but I'm currently trying to use these motors.

How do I wire the motor to the microcontroller and program it to run? I've been looking for days on how to do this and returned unsuccessful. I found the Makezine blog post the most accessible resource, but I'm still not sure how to do this.

This SparkFun tutorial shows you everything from soldering the motor leads to programming it from your Arduino IDE.
