There are a few things that all need to work correctly for it to program:

– The programmer
– The chip
– The connection between them
– The software
There’s not much that I can say, except that you need to check each of those things to find out where the error is.  I’ve been there a few times, and I usually feel pretty silly after finding the error that I missed (backwards cable? no power? wrong software command?).
Do you have the external crystal installed? And, are you trying to install a bootloader that requires one?
