can i just switch the atmega8 out for a atmega168?

just wondering if i could switch out the atmega8 and put in an atmega168... would i just need to burn the bootloader onto the atmega168? and be good to go. It lookw like I have an NG8. Thanks for the help.

I asked that in one of the other forum threads, and the answer i got was "yes", haven't gotten around to do it yet.

To make things really easy for yourself, you cold buy one of the 168 processors with the bootloader allready burnt in.

It's somewhat Mac specific, but worth the read.


thanks, ill check it out. Ill see if i can get one already burned.
