Driving stepper motors smoothly?

First of all, what is the appropriate newsgroup for questions about
stepper motors? On with the actual question:
Is there a reasonably priced option for driving stepper motors
smoothly, i.e., not having them stop and start every 1.8 (or 0.9)
degrees? I have some 200 step/rev motors that I would like to drive
at speeds ranging from 0.1 to 4 RPM in one application and 0.4 to 16
RPM in another. I would prefer a system that has already been
designed by someone who knows what they are doing, though I would not
mind doing some kit assembly.

I like Ocean Controls stuff. It's attractively priced, it comes with nice graphic control software for a PC. It's an Aussie shop. They know what they are doing. Take a look
[There are plenty of others....]
I would say you don't fill an intending helper with confidence if you can specify max and min rates, step size but not power requirement. or torque or some such....
