From what I could gather, your PJ has only two Video Inputs. Both are accessible by S-Video (DIN) or BNC connection. In your set up, the best and easiest method is to use a basic S-Video cable.
Did the projector come with a manual? If so, what resolution is claimed?
How many BNC connectors are present, and are the connectors labeled?
(The S/Video connection is easy, but the BNCs are intriguing.)
BNC is a physical connector type, like RCA. It can be used in many configurations for audio, or video, etc. You will need to say what type of input it is. Physically speaking, BNC is the best connector type, better than RCA and S-video, however it is likely that this projector just has single BNC connectors for composite-video input. If this is the case, you should use the S-video input.
BNC connectors can also be uses as s-video inputs, component inputs, RGBhv inputs.
I couldn't find any information on this projector, so I do not know what is the case here.
Chris is right, it’s tough to find anything on this projector on the Web, but I did find an expired eBay auction with a rear-panel picture. It has two video inputs, each with a single BNC and S-video connection. In this case the BNC will be carrying a composite video signal, so I agree with Darren that using S-video is the way to go.

If the case is as wayne says, then indeed use the s-video input if possible. You may want to try the composite input just in case, because if it's old as it seems to be, the s-video may be an afterthought and may be implemented poorly. It is unlikely, but it might be that the s-video input is poor, so if the picture sucks, it might be worth checking...
If only composite, the BNC may have been intended for use with an (industrial) laserdisc player. Some non-consumer models had BNC connections.
