Datasheet, P29. Connect the crystal to pin 2 and pin 3. Connect 22pF caps from pin2 to ground, and pin 3 to ground. Set up up the clock selection fuses when you program the chip,.

i looked at the datasheet, i didnt understand any of it. i have never had proper training so i have a hard time reading schematics altho i think i know how to connect the circuit based on what you said. i just need to know how i would program it?

to set the fuses, you need another arduino. Have you got one?

yes, thats how i program my attiny's

In that case, look at the instructions for the internal fuses in the documentation.

If you screw up, you'll brick the Attiny, unless you have a parallel programmer.
