Sorry I've been gone for a while. I finally threw up my hands and gave up on the Techzone electronics. It seemed that, no matter what I did, I could not get any firmware to work correctly on it. When I looked online I found that very few people were working with or supporting it so there wasn't the community that I needed to help me through it. Given that sad situation I ordered a Sanguinololu and I have been waiting for it to arrive.
The new board arrived last night so I am back on track. I will be using the Sprinter firmware since it seems to be fairly mature and has a good support community. I hope to have time tonight to get things hooked up and tested.
