It will not damage your board. You should try it!
SCOOORE!!! Works - THX a lot!!!
I tried before (without DTR--RTS connected) because I've read somewhere that the DTR is to reboot the board - but maybe my bad english...
"The major difference with this board is that it brings out the DTR pin as opposed to the RTS pin of the FTDI cable. The DTR pin allows an Arduino target to auto-reset when a new Sketch is downloaded."
Also I had connected RX to TX and TX to RX - WRONG - but now it works!!! THX
REALLY last question: Should I load up sketches with my setup or ???
