Lefty,Thanks. This clears up some details for me.As you explained, the second newer method is working fine for me. However, as to the first method, I bootloaded the optiboot.hex bootload to my Atmega328p-pu which I understand to be the bootload for a typical Uno. I also set the fuses according to the Uno. And I have the neccesary 16Mhz exteranl clock and all. By doing so, I would assume that selecting the "Arduino Uno" as my board type in the IDE would satisfy the necessary conditions to allow uploading of a sketch to work. This is what I have tried, but fails.Am I still missing something?
CrossRoads and Lefty,I think you both are coming to a similar conclusion which I will test.As previously noted, this shows pretty much exactly my layout http://itp.nyu.edu/physcomp/uploads/arduinobload_wires.jpg except for the screw up in the MOSI line.On the FT232R I am not using the RTS or DTR line at all going to the Atmega328 chip. However, the Reset on the Atmega328 is pulled to 5V with a 10k and a manual reset button as shown.Should the FT232R's RST line run to the Atmega328 reset, pin1?No, do connect the FT232R's reset pin to anything, just leave it as a no connection.And should I go ahead and add the 100nF cap between DTR and RST on the FT232R?No. You need to go from DTR on the FT232R to a series wired cap, then cap to the reset pin of the 328.LeftyI think I get it that I have no reset running over to the Atmega328, as it IS running over from my breakout board to the Pocket Programmer, as shown in the image.

Hi,can some one explain maybe in short, what is actually going on, bootloading arduinos?2 Usb connections! I finally got it working, but why so complicated?When I bought the avr pocket programmer I thought thats all I would need, connect it to the ISP connector of the chip e.g.ATmega328P, add a resonator and programm it.Instead of using an IDE I thought I`ll be using the Arduino Software. I got it working, but don`t have a clue how.Thanks for any explainations,John
