Yeah, you will have to get a different ICM for that 21x3 board.  Unless you have, and want to use, the motors that went with that Force Dynamics ICM.  Go to Galil's website and lookup the ICM that you need. 

ICM-20100    Interconnect with D-type
ICM-20105    Interconnect with optoisolated I/O

These are the usual suspects.

I can't say for sure because I know nothing about the Force Dynamics ICM that is currently mounted to your 2133.  All I can say is that usually the 21x3 boards come from Galil with a ICM-10100 or a ICM-20105.

If you have the amps and servos that connect to that Force Dynamics ICM, then you may be able to use them.  But you did not specify for what type of machine (mill/lathe) or what size the amps and motors are.

As for drivers, you don't need any.  All you need is the version 4.5 of the Galil plugin and an Ethernet connection between the Mach PC and the Galil.  You will also want to get the Galil manuals for the DMC-21x3 controller as a working knowledge of the Galil is pretty much required.  Read them and learn them.  You can also get software from Galil to operate the controller through a terminal interface.

Typically, one would use the Galil software to setup and tune the motors BEFORE you even start trying to configure Mach.

That link has all you need.  Manuals (English only, I'm afraid), Software (Galil Suite-lite), and ICM options.
