DIY MOTOR CONTROLLER!!! I use a Basic Stamp 2!!! I want it to be able to control 3 motors!!!

Okey guys, I'm having a little problem here, I'm low on cash and I want to build a DIY motor controller.

However, I need it to be able to control three or four motors.

And the ones I found on instructables are manually controlled (By hand)!!!

Can somebody give me the list of parts, where to get them (in Australia) and the schematic for it?

I'm really desperate!!!

Anyone have any idea which mini servo I should use?

I live in Australia and shipping leaves me wallet oh so empty.
