My reset pin in always low and I think thats why I'm unable to get any Thanks
First thing is to program your chip. That is an erase, pgm, verify cycle.
Once that works, then at least try disconnecting the programmer from the board and cycling power. If you have tied your reset line high through a resistor, the cpu should start. The programmer should be driving the reset low during programming though.
I did notice that on my programmer avrisp from kanda http://kanda.com/index.php3?cs=1&
if you don't choose the "run" option after programming, the reset line is held low.
I too built a circuit from a atmega32, tied reset high through a resistor, connected ground and power, and added a led and resistor to a port pin. The already programmed 32 executed the program. Then I connected my programmer directly to the 4-5 lines and I could ISP it.
