help interfacing FTDI with existing project

Hi All,

i am trying to interface an FTDI found herehttps://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/DevTools/Arduino/FTDI%20Basic-v21-5V.pdf. I've eliminated PIN 17 as the FTDI would be power by the USB port.

Would somebody please verify if the schematic i've put up is correct.

I was just using the sparkfun FTDI basic break-out as a reference while designing the USB to UART Bridge.

What about using DTR to reset the Atmega8 instead of RTS?

I was taking the design from the schematic used in sparkfun and misread the RTS as DTR. Thank you for pointing it out.
