Hi,

Just a small question. Would it be possible to use the FT232R for programming a ATmega644 which already contains a arduino bootloader (from Sanguino)? I can find lots of examples using a ATmega238 or  168, but none about the ATmega644.

I bet that is possible, and most probably done.
The "boards.txt" file needs the additional info for the 644

e.g. https://code.google.com/p/arduino-atmega644/source/browse/boards.txt

Sure can. The FT232  just performs USB/Serial conversion, the '644 doesn't care where the serial is coming from.
That's basically what this is - a 40 pin 324/644/1284 with an FTDI FT232 module for USB/Serial.

Thanks. I didn't want to spent any money at it while I was not sure it could be done.
