Problem uploading to board message

Hello all,

I am very new to this forum and genre of technology.
I’m using the Arduino Diecimila board as required for a robotics class I’m taking.
I followed all the instructions for set up, but when I tried to run the blink example I get this error message:
Problem uploading to board:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x30
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51

I am running the program on a PowerBook G4 Titanium at home.
When I tried it at school running the program on a desktop G5 it worked fine.

Can anyone give me some feedback as to what the problem may be?

Never mind…I already figured it out on my own.

Would you mind telling us how?
