How does the SparkFun ATmega168 behave when it's loaded in the Arduino?

It seems to work fine in the arduino with just the led blink sketch, I haven't tried anything else. Is there something I should test for?

I can't really test too much in the standalone board, because I didn't use a breadboard. It's all soldered up into a really small package (2" x 1.5").

You have...

 - An Arduino with an ATmega168 processor
 - An ATmega168 processor purchased from SparkFun that has a bootloader installed
 - A "really small project"

Correct?

You program the Arduino processor while it's loaded in the Arduino, pull out the processor, put it in your really small project and everything works as you expect.  Correct?

Correct. Although it isn't really "a small project", it's just mounted on a really small PCB.
