success with ATiny 85 and ATtiny84 with Arduino IDE

Hey guys just thought I would pop on and mention how I am able to my boardunio as an ISP and program 84's and 85's with Arduino IDE version 1.0.2

I downloaded the tgz (zip) files ( I am running Linux) for the IDE, then the ATiny_master and the the ATiny cores (latest version) from the Google tiny cores site.

Installed the IDE........unpacked the master.zip in the /arduino/hardware directory, the unpacked the tiny core package in the same directory.

Select the appropriate board, programed, and USB port and all is good. I always burn the "boot loader" to 1mhz first and then to 8 (reselect the higher speed board)

Also be aware that anything higher than 8mhz requires an external oscillator.

I have combined blink and fade sketches into one , and this procedure works for me,
Though I am still having issues with watchdog timers and software serial.

An edit to my previous post. The ATiny master package is the one from High Low tech, the M.I.T. site.
