The R-TEAM Robotics club chose the ATMega328 as its standard mostly because of the great open source tools and community built around the Arduino, which utilizes this microcontroller. An added bonus is the freely available AVR Studio from Atmel. The goal of this lesson is to give you a functioning breadboarded ATMega328 that you can load Arduino code onto and then blink an LED.
It is important for you to get some background reading done on microcontrollers, especially if you have never used one before. I would recommend the following articles and then make liberal use of google to fill in the rest.
It is the same schematic as in lesson 1.
