Batteries, PICkit2 and ATmega328 (Pro Mini)

I've had a need to reprogram the fuses on an Arduino Pro Mini clone, as I'm intending to use it on battery power. Running on a couple of AA batteries means the highest voltage the device is going to see is 3v, rather than the 5v the device is expecting. This is going to mean a few modifications in order to make this all work! Just in case you thought that wasn't stacking things up enough, I'm going to be using my PICkit2 to program the Pro Mini clone.
