1 motor walkers
BEAM walkers with 1 motor and 2 or more legs

I've seen two ways (to date) to make a single-motor walker walk.

1) Use gears to link two hubs, each with 2 legs, only one hub is powered.

2) Make your walker with 2 legs (attached to the motor) and a rear skid or roller.

For more information...

There's a tutorial on building a single-motor / 6-leg walker out of "LEGO" pieces here; even if you don't build with LEGO, this is a good tutorial on the necessary mechanical design.
