G201,G202, G203, G210 and G212 are the stepper drives from Gecko.
The 201,202,203 are fixed at 10 microsteps the 210,212 have full, half 5 and 10.
Best bet for you I would think would be to stick to the 201,202,203. Probably actually 201 or 202 would be ones I would go for.

You will need 1 drive for each motor you have.

No laughing here, only time I laugh is when people dont ask questions :)

Heres how things work
 Your parallel port cable comes from the computer, it connects to a breakout board (can just solder direct to cable but breakout is better) Then the drives connect via Step and Direction pins to the breakout. The motors connect to the drives and also a power supply connects to the drives. Limit switches and other I/O you may have connect to the breakout board.
 For the Geckos a power supply of between 24 and 80V DC is needed, they are easy enough to make, I will post a link in a few mins to a pdf that tells you how. The more voltage you supply (80v max) the faster you will manage to get your motors turning :)

Robhi
 just looked back at your earlier posts and the drives you have will probably do, they accept step/direction input and that is what Mach puts out.
 Geckos would get you moving faster probably but on a small machne it may not be needed :)
