OK admittedly I am confused with the "programmed bit is '0'" logic, so I need my brain rebooted to grasp the avrdude output below:
<br /> avrdude> d lf<br /> >>> d lf<br /> 0000 ff
which I incidentally invoked with 'avrdude -p atmega8 lpt1 -t -c dapa'. And seems to indicate my fuse bits are all FF, are they now programmed or set? ...and how do I un-set them?
What I noticed is that I need to remove power to do a power-on reset for the bits to take effect, is this correct? Am using internal oscillator, 4V supply over ISP (parallel-port).
