I ordered a ATMEGA328 off of amazon
Here is a link for it:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00761CCH0/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00I don't know anything about bootloading. It says it has a pre-installed one
1) Yep plugged in the right way2) 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
