Can someone give me a simple explanation of what I need to do to sequence drums with the equipment I have?

Hi, guys. I have a QS6.1, am planning on getting a serial cable for direct connection with my
IBM PC (an Aptiva), I have the software programs that came with the keyboard (which one do I want
to use, Unisyn?), and some MIDI cables for running the sequence back out of the keyboard into
my VS-880 EX. Do I have everything I need? Will there be a problem with my computer recognizing
the source (keyboard) from the serial cable? Do I need to get an expansion card to save sequences
on? I figure I will hook up the keybard to the computer with the serial cable, then program a
sequence with the software. Then, the computer will send the sequence back into the keyboard,
which will simultainiously send it into my recorder (VS-880 EX) via MIDI cables. I have never done
this before and want to make sure I have everything I need and am on the right track (bad pun!).
Let me know if you see anything I have missed or have any tips for this sequencing beginner.
Thank you very much in advance!
