You could do a forum search to find out what others are using for their BOBís - the C10 seems to be popular and this can be found here http://www.cnc4pc.com/Store/osc/index.php?cPath=33&osCsid=2d1fd3d8ffdeb2cc6078c4da7037fc55
This is the basics of what I would do ( I donít offer any warranty on this !!).
Q3HB220M Driver:- Pin 6 switches alternate steps per revolution which is not required. Pin 10 is an index output which is not required at this stage. Pin 12 is a driver ready output which is not required. (This assumes that you will not be using encoders with the motors).
Set the steps per (SK1) to a realistic setting, perhaps position 9 (2000). Set motor run current (runIM) and motor hold current (stopIM) to match your motors.
LPT output pins / BOB pins and Mach setup:-

Input / Output signals.
2 D0/output x step step low active
3 D1/output x dir active high / low will determine motor direction.
4 D2/output y step step low active
5 D3/output y dir active high / low will determine motor direction.
6 D4/output z step step low active
7 D5/output z dir active high / low will determine motor direction.

Under motor tuning set the steps per to 2000, acceleration and velocity low (to start with) and the step and direction pulse widths to 2 uS.
Initial test:- Connect up one drive first (X axis) as diagram. At switch on the motor should lock Ė If the motor rotates, switch off and change DP4 to ON. Switch on again Ė if the motor does not lock, switch off and connect pin 8 (motor free signal) to GND and pin7 to +5V and try again.
Always switch off before changing any settings or connecting / disconnecting wires. Observe caution and safety when dealing with the 220 Vac and motor connections.
