James,

    I purchased about five ATmega328's that has a blank bootloader. Then I wanted to avoid pulling the arduino's ATmega out to program the chips 1-5. Figured I would create this shield to burn the bootloader as well as burn the program I wanted to use that chip(1-5) for. I.E. the 4x4 cube present, or the relay box I have. I guess what I have created is JUST the bootloader shield NOT a full on programming shield.

So you were trying to build a generic "Arduino as ISP [in-circuit serial programmer]" shield?

James,

   Yes I suppose that is what I was trying! Am I far off on this?

Look at the Arduino as ISP stuff and determine if the connections of your shield are the same connections.  If so, it is just a matter of loading the "Arduino as ISP" sketch on to the "host" Arduino.
