    John, I can’t answer for what the LinuxCNC folks put in the menu (or not), but you can find the data you need here http://linuxcnc.org/docs/2.7/html/config/stepconf.html#cha:stepconf-wizard and here http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Stepper_Drive_Timing

    I haven’t made a system with a pulley/belt, so I can’t answer for sure.
    I don’t provide support for software, so I’d send you to the LinuxCNC StepConf instructions (kind of vague regarding belts/pulleys) and I’d direct you to google. Belts/pulleys are a bit more dicey than a simple screw, but there’s lots of answers on the net.
