1) Yep plugged in the right way
2) I didn't get the error when I switched the board to Uno under the settings and uploaded, it just said done uploading. I tried to interface it with my computer program but it didn't work. I am away from my arduino right now but I can later try uploading a simple LED blink just to test out if it works. What happens if it has the Uno bootloader on it? Would it still work or will I have to put the duemilanove one on? Right now I'm working on interfacing with software and Serial communication if that makes a difference.
3)...yeah...I hope not :/ shipping takes forever

The board will work fine using a Uno bootloader, you just need to remember to always pick Uno as the board type for your now ex-duemilanove.

I warned ya, repent now before it's too late.

OP, as noted, UNO bootloader works fine in Duemilanove boards. Funny that the vendor
doesn't know what he's doing! You can buy the bootloader chips from places in the US
like jameco, adafruit, sparkfun, but they cost a good deal more.

We learn something every day !

I sometimes buy other-than-duemilenova bootloaded chips for my embedded projects, and hook up my two boards to reload the original bootloader.

So I could have just tried selecting another board.....

@  OP,   did the LED on the Arduino board flash once a second when you switched on ? 
With my mobile phone I can call people and talk to them -  how smart can you get ?
