You need to find the specs for that particular display, so you know which pins control which segments and whether they do so directly or indirectly. That will also tell you what signals, at what voltages, you need to apply in order to display those segments.

BUT: It's quite possible that the display is designed to display only 0-9, or those plus A through F for hexidecimal.

 you interface it using any number of chips, by flashing certain segments on or off, it will form letters. they are made up of leds.

 oh... like a calculator display.

in that case, you will need to find the datasheet, or goof around with the display... if it is truly the display that im thinking of, then a 7 segment led display would be easier to interface, and imo, look cooler
