OK so I have just received my Arduino Ethernet shield R3 and I currently have a new Arduino R3 on it's way. However as you can probably guess I want to get stuck right in now but I only have what I believe is a Arduino Duemilanove R1 to hand at the moment and so was hoping there would be a way to make them work together jut for the time being maybe via a breadboard or some other means?
My Arduino was a 2009 purchase and when the Ethernet shield is placed on top it have four or so spare pins that do not connect to the Arduino and almost touch the boards components. I did Google the issue but it didn't turn up much helpful info.
Thanks in advance,
