Good news, bad news.

I got my board all assembled, all my hookups for the display and buttons, and it looks good.

However, I can't seem to interface it via serial to any PC. My main workstation is Ubuntu 8.04, but also tested on WinXP. On Linux, I get "programmer is not responding", on Windows, I get some "not in sync" message.

Nothing in the troubleshooting seems to help me. Any ideas? Any quick "check this" tips?

Basically, I have the power light on, and the #13 led blinking away about every 2-3 seconds. The 7805 is getting warm (11v input), but nothing else is hot. I don't have any solder bridges that I can tell. I need to know how to tell if maybe I have a dud board or something else.
