If anyone else is has a Sparkfun Protoshield heres a question. How do i hook up the mini breadboard to the 5v and gnd lines on the PCB? I've been able to solder up everything else pretty well but I'm stuck on this one. Thanks
the long line of +5 and GND solder connections are meant for soldering components to the actual protoshield, when you aren't using a breadboard.
With the mini-breadboard installed, you can get +5 and GND from the black header marked "VCC, GND, GND, RAW"
VCC = +5 GND=GND RAW = +9V or whatever unregulated DC voltage you're pumping into the external power jack.
