I2C off of Linux box


I'm interested in getting an I2C signal out of my Linux box to control some PWM chips (DS1050) Is there a simple way to do this? Where should I start?

I actually have a Totalphase adapter that converts the usb to an I2C signal but I would like to control several devices from several different Linux boxes. Therefore I would need a few of these things and they're not exactly cheap.

I found this thing searching online called DMX4Linux
It seems to be a driver which will control an I2C DAC. They also claim you can get the signal off the parallel port with a couple of resistors and diodes. Could this work?

Anyway, I hope somebody will set me straight.

Thanks in advance for any help.
