Yeah, that's what I mean. What I'm saying is when I start to stop prototyping I don't want to have that white board. Is it easy to connect it up to the microcontroller without the breadboard?
No, the arduino board is not designed to have any external components directly mounted to it. What some do is purchase a proto-shield board and mount your external components on that shield board which then mates with the arduino board.
Here is an example of a protoshield board: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/7914
