 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Im getting an error while burning the bootloader from the Arduino Duemilanove to a microcontroller Atmega328 on a breadbord. I burned a hex file before for another aplication in the microcontroller so now i get the "avrdude: Yikes!  INVALID DEVICE SIGNATURE Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override this check." So i want to override the check, but i dont know how to give the -F instruction to the avrdude. Does anyone knows how to?

You'll have to download winavr and then run avrdude from the command line.

However, it's probably giving the error for a reason... Did you make sure that the reset pin was tied to 5V with a 120 ohm resistor? If you don't have that, when avrdude starts up the serial communication to tell the arduino what to burn, it will reset the arduino and screw up everything.
