ATtiny85 is not an option under Tools-->Board   yet the directions I'm following insists it should be there:

Select "ATtiny45 (w/ Arduino as ISP)" or "ATtiny85 (w/ Arduino as ISP)" from the Tools > Board menu (leave the serial port set to that of your Arduino board).

I'm using the 0022 IDE.  

Have I put the ATtiny library in the wrong location?


No way to know.  If you downloaded the files from http://code.google.com/p/arduino-tiny/ , the folders go under 'hardware' in your arduino-0022 folder.  Some of them also have a 'tools' folder, pay attention to that as well.

I figured it out after watching this guy do it:

After you download the library, titled attiny45_85, then you have to open it up and inside is another folder titled... attiny45_85.  You have to use the folder inside as the library, not the original one.
