Actually, I bet that box will just spit out data without anything 
needing to talk to it.  Type "xxd /dev/ttyS0" (adjust for what 
serial port you plug the thing into) and try playing an open E 
string to see what you get (and if it's consistent...) and work 
from there.  The toughest part may be trying to figure out the 
baud rate....
