Oh, also, I connected a LED to pin 13 and GND, and it stays lit,even when the board is heating up...
If the Arduino chip got warm, warm enough to smoke, then you did not connect your battery or servos correctly.
WIth nothing but the USB port connect to your Arduino board you can try to upload and run the blink sketch. If it works you have been lucky.
Or did the smoke come from something else than the actual microprocessor chip?
With a resistor?
A very complete tutorial is available here... http://www.ladyada.net/learn/arduino/lesson3.html
Is it me, or does the smaller Atmega (USB controller) look like what smoked?
Connecting it to another computer didn't help, so it looks this is permanently damaged. It can clearly draw power from a usb port, I wonder why it can't receive data.. =/
