Hi there!

Since it is more or less expensive in Argentina to buy a big  arduino card , I built an Arduino Severino to start working with Arduino MCU's. However I have a problem: Whenever I hookup the parallel programmer to the ISP pins in order to burn in the bootloader the led 13 lights on, and stays that way. When I try burning the bootloader it will give a message like this:

avrdude: AVR device not responding
avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1
avrdude: Yikes!  Invalid device signature.
avrdude: Expected signature for ATMEGA168 is 1E 95 0F

When using avrdude standalone, forcing the work with the -F parameter it would say that the device signature is 0x000

I tested the cable and seems to be ok and I configured preferences.txt on the arduino folder. Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance,

EDIT: One more thing to consider, I'm using a BC558 instead of BC557, but both transistors are well oriented.
