oh - i think there is a little misunderstanding - the tutorial i mentioned discribed this, i only didn't know, that these pins are the isp pins. my board is connected to the arduino like in this picture and i also uploadet the "arduinoISP" sketch to the uno, also switched the IDE to the board i want to burn the bootloader to (Arduino Diecimila or Duemilanove w/ATmega168P) and the bootloader burning process starts, but the RX/TX lights of my arduino uno stoped blinking after ~15 sec, the burning process fails and i got the error messages i posted above.
.2uf ceramic capacitor
between 5v and reset
I am trying to load the minimalist bootloader on it. Is this what is causing the problem?
i think i was accidentally combining both methods listed in the tutorial you linked to resistor between reset and 5v and the capacitor between reset and ground.
and for the capacitor . . . my wife always tells me that size doesn't matter so i was just going off of that maybe i should rethink . . lol
also am I correct that if using an arduino uno rev 3 that i DO NOT need to disable any auto-reset
I really do appreciate all the help
