How can I control a tilt-pan servo using my pc or arduino?

I am looking to control something like this http://www.lynxmotion.com/images/html/build16a.htm
Using my PC or arduino so that I can get to to preform a random scrolling type of pattern, I want to mount model spot lights to them so I can use them in a model city scene. I know this is possible, I just have no real idea where to start.

Thanks!

You're right, it's possible. Essentially all your pan tilt device is is two servos strapped together. You can get a good idea of how to use a servo with an arduino from this instructable (step 6). This guide on the arduino website also has a lot of information on how to use an arduino with servos.

Hope this helps.
