I got a couple of atmega168's from a friend, but they don't have the bootloader on them of course. I bought a cheap programmer off of eBay, but now I'm wondering if there's a place to download an up to date version of the NK bootloader?

I think the one I have came on a CD at some point.

Go into the Members Area of the site, then go to the download area, and download the NerdKit Sample Source Code. There will be a bootlader folder for both the 168's and 328's.

If you have any questions on the process, I wrote up a bootloader tutorial not too long ago that may help. You can find it HERE on the Forum.
