Hi, what clock fuse bits should i program for the atmega8 if i'm using the onboard 3.68 Mhz internal clock system on the STK500.

i looked up the atmega8 data sheet, but not sure what type of clock source that it should be under,

If you're using the STK500's onboard oscillator, you can specify that you are using an "External clock", but specifying that you are using a crystal also works. If you set the clock fuses for an external clock, your AVR will appear to be dead if you later try to use a crystal without first fixing the clock fuses.
