Tony,
You can connect the guide camera to the PC and use software like PHD to generate corrections....you then need to get these signals back to the mount.
You can use a GPUSB cable (with a serial to USB adaptor -I recommend the KEYSPAN) to connect to the ST-4 guide port on the mount.
The other method is to use ASCOM/ EQMOD connections to pulse guide via either the handcontroller ( the upgrade cable you got with the mount) or by a EQDIR usb cable.
(Some of the guide cameras - not the DSI - have a ST-4 port built in and just need a ST-4 cable to connect to the mount)
