... im gonna give this a fair shake and read in detail as a favor to myself to atleast give one more chance ...

because i was looking for arduinoisp error fixes not a whole new method of use, when i get done with this other tutorial if it doesnt work i'll give yours a look and try again

I warn you that I don't have an Atmega8 (I might order one) so that isn't actually tested with one. It did work with all the other chips I tried in the post.
(from tutorial) Type 'L' to use Lilypad (8 MHz) loader, or 'U' for Uno (16 MHz) loader
You shouldn't need a crystal, by the way.Just as a heads-up, I think those chips are usually shipped to run off the internal 8 MHz oscillator, with the "divide clock by 8" fuse set. My programmer should work OK, I've used it with other "fresh" chips, but you might find you need to alter the fuse to get it up to full speed (once you have the bootloader on it). If you don't, it will be running at the wrong baud rate and the bootloader will appear not to be working.

i had noticed tho your tutorial doesnt incorporate completely blank(no-bootloader) bare(no-crystal) microcontrollers, have you tried it that way to see if itll work? im trying to get as much info on this as i can before i try it
is that for the chip being bootloaded(blank chip)?

That indicates that you are not succesfully "talking" to the target chip. I think the wiring is the same as the Atmega328 so your wiring should exactly match the photo above.
ive got a 13.#### mhz it fits onto that 4-20 range but am very limited on capacitors to use with it, are the capacitor numbers crucial to the crystal?
