Simple bidirectional dc motor control with myDaq

I'm new to the myDaq and fairly inexperienced with Labview however for my uni project I need to be able to run a few tests with a DC motor controlling the tension of a guitar string.

The motor runs in the range of 4.5 - 15V and due to the low current output of the mydaq is wired up to a motor controller board which in turn is connected to the power. The board connects to the 0 and 1 Analogue output ports on the protoboard of the mydaq and as far as I know this is correct.

What I'd like to do is write a simple program to turn the motor in both directions...essentially from 0 - 2.5V the motor turns one way and 2.5 - 5V the other hence it is stationary at 2.5V. If anyone can offer a few pointers that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Angus
