Is it a cable like this?
I'm considering getting one of these. There are several different software programs that can be found by searching for "obd" over on demonoid.

My mechanic does the same (cable/laptop) but there's a fairly pricey yellow box in that chain (one of the two programming modules or whatever they're called).
Maybe the yellow box is the interface? I have seen cheaper cables on ebay that connect to rs232 serial and require an additional interface to communitcate with a PC.
