 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Somewhere recently I saw a comment to the effect that using IDE 1.0.? when you burn a boot loader to a 328, you had to call the board a Uno from then on even if it was a Duemilanove.  I was playing around burning boot loaders on some chips I had trashed (Ubuntu 10.04 seems to trash boot loaders, but that's a different story) when I discovered that statement was not correct.  I burned a  boot loader and found I still needed to call it a Duemilanove.  Then the next day I burned another one and found it wouldn't work unless I called it a Uno.  So I started playing.  Seems that you can govern the type of board the IDE thinks you have by changing the board by choosing it in the Tools/Board on the IDE before burning.  This may be obvious to everyone but it was news to me.  On the off chance I'm not the only clueless person here, I decided to share my observations.

Note, I'm using the usbtinyisp programmer and I only tried it with Uno vs Duemilanove on IDE 1.0.3.

Thanks, I figured it might be documented somewhere but I couldn't find it.
