step 1: buy ATAVRISP2 programmer (the USB version) - it is cheap enough step 2: stand back and watch it doing the job step 3: get on with project instead of wasting time fiddling with home made programmers !

Hi,
Your using a parallel port programmer? If your PC is a portable then pickup or build an STK200/300 compatible programmer. On most portables the voltages on the port are too low to program an AVR without using a buffer chip.
You also need administrator rights under XP to allow you to install & configure the I/O driver used to talk to the parallel port.

Looks like a good choice, but that restriction to 5V could become an embarassment - everything I do these days is 3.3V or less ...
I guess the basic point to be made is that spending a certain amount on good tools will get you further, faster. It can be very frustrating when you get a fault and haven't a clue what is causing it. If I'm about to work with a new processor or FPGA I buy somebodies simple dev board first - gives me a 'working reference' to compare my efforts with.
have fun
