 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi! I just got a pair of Arduino NG's.
I'm running linux and am an experienced C programmer so I didn't want to use the arduino IDE but installed the crosscompilation toolchain from source, and the arduino-core 0007 archive..
I'm using GCC 4.1.0, Binutils 2.17, avr-libc 1.4.5 and avrdude 5.3.1

Please help, I would really want to get this started...

I'm using these settings in my Makefile:
 
PORT = /dev/ttyUSB0
TARGET = arduino-test
ARDUINO = /Files/AVR-Cross/arduino-core
SRC = $(TARGET).c $(ARDUINO)/buffer.c $(ARDUINO)/pins_arduino.c \
  $(ARDUINO)/Serial.c $(ARDUINO)/uart.c $(ARDUINO)/wiring.c
CXXSRC = $(ARDUINO)/HardwareSerial.cpp $(ARDUINO)/WRandom.cpp
MCU = atmega168
F_CPU = 16000000
FORMAT = ihex
UPLOAD_RATE = 19200

 
I compiled the led blink code successfully, but had troubles uploading it... then I realized that MCU should be atmega168 and not atmega8, after that change I successfully uploaded the code and got it to run. But the LED blinked way too fast (not 1000ms) and I tried changing it to 10000 in the code and compiling and uploading it again, but then it just went black. And now I can't get it to run! (whatever delay values I use in the led blink code).
 
Here's the output from avrdude:
 
avrdude -v -F -p atmega168 -P /dev/ttyUSB0 -c stk500 -b 19200 -U flash:w:arduino-test.hex

avrdude done.  Thank you.

 
It seems to quit the bootloader after some time though, since I can't re-upload anything if I wait too long after pressing the RESET button on the board... So perhaps it's running something??
 
Also, is it correct that the bootloader should flash the LED on pin 13 three times and then stay black when pressing the RESET button?
