I want to make an avr board with atmega88 like the one in avrbeginners... But I want to program it in my laptop, so my parallel port programmer is out of the question...
Can I use the FTDI part of arduino: http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/Arduino-Diecimila-schematic.pdf
And connect X3 to ICSP like this: http://www.geocities.jp/arduino_diecimila/bootloader/index_en.html
It would be like that dev atmega88 board but with usb rather than rs232.
Thanks for any help that might come :)
