ArduinoISP Error

I'm trying to burn the arduino bootloader on an ATmega328 SMD version. I'm using my arduino Duemilanove as the ISP. But when I burn the bootloader, I get this error:


avrdude: stk500_program_enable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x50

avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1 Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override this check. avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51


Is there anyway to fix this or override it with the -F it's talking about? I checked my SCK, MISO, and MOSI connections and the ATmega328 SMD is properly powered.

You can get more output error messages, when you hold the SHIFT key while uploading a sketch. Don't know if this works for burn Bootloaders too. Another tip is to open the Arduino preferences.txt file (Arduino IDE mus be closed) and change the line

upload.verbose=false

into:

upload.verbose=true

Post the complete output message here.
