The Uno using the traditional packaging Atmega 328P works as it is supposed to - you write the sketch to it (say the 'blink' example, the simplest one out there with feedback) and it works.
Remove power and restore power, and the program (blink) works as expected.
However, when you do the exact same procedure with either of the SMD Edition Uno's the program's run when you load it on to the Uno.
But if you remove power and then restore power it goes back to the boot loader blinking.
Very frustrating. I have ordered an ISP and built the software necessary to drive it.. now if I just knew of a good bootloader
I could put on this Uno so that it is actually useable that would be good.
Has anyone else had this problem? Anyone else have any ideas what to do next?
FWIW: I am running the Arduino 022 software on a 10.6 OSX machine.
