You're welcome. Looks like you are new to AVR
microcontrollers as well. The most confusing thing
for newbies is, that there are many ways.

Please have a look to
which is a bit outdated, but still valuable.

If using ICCAVR, have a look to

A lot of general information about AVR is here

Are you using avr-gcc on Linux or WinAVR on Windows?

1. Open a command line and change to the Nut/OS installation

2. Run ./configure or nutconf.exe (ignore the error

3. Make sure your PATH includes the Nut/OS tools/win32
or tools/linux directory and the directories of the
avr-gcc tools. There is a good documentation included
with both compilers and avr-libc (see their sample
(not the original link)

4. cd to app/httpd

5. type 'make burn' (assuming that your programmer had been
connected to the Ethernut, the PC serial port and the
Ethernut is switched on).

Sorry for this smorgasbord. When Ethernut started, most
users were AVR experts and had been mostly satisfied
with the schematics. While the project is developing,
it more and more becomes the first contact with the
world of embedded programming for many users. We are
aware of this and try to help.
