Newbie trouble uploading

Hi all,
I am having difficulty uploading my code.
I am using version 0017.
I have checked that I have selected the correct board (duemilanove 328), and have selected the USB port.
I get the error message:-

avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x00

Pls Help!

There is a whole section of the forum for these issues. You are not having a programming problem.

I got those messages a lot too. It turned out it was some driver problem.
