So I bought an Atmega8 with no bootloader on it. I uploaded the ArduinoISP sketch on my Uno, and hooked it up to my Atmega8 like this: http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Tutorial/BreadboardAVR.png
Then, in Arduino 0022, I selected the "arduinoNG w/ Atmega8", and clicked burn bootloader > w/ arduino as ISP. After A few seconds I got the message that it was done. Problem is, I can't upload upload any sketches to the Atmega8. I'm using my Uno as a USB to serial converter, and hooking up the reset, TX, and RX pins to the Atmega8 like this:http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Tutorial/ArduinoUSBSerial.png
After selecting "arduinoNG w/ Atmega8" and pressing upload, all I get is the occasional rapid blinking from an led I hooked up to pin 13 and this error message from Arduino 0022 "avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51"
I'm trying to load the blink sketch. Any ideas? I'm new to all this bootloading stuff so I'm really surprised i even got this far.
