Boarduino Pinout

I'm looking at the DC Boarduino schematic and the board itself and see several places where it indicates +5V.

Are all of these from the on-board 5V regulator drawing power from the 2.1mm DC jack?

I have a green light from the power supply, but I don't seem to be outputting 5V from any of the pins indicated. I've tried powering from both the 2.1mm DC and an FTDI Friend.

Oh, one more thing. I've been able to upload the "blink" sketch, so I'm fairly certain power in general is okay.

The source of the +5v rail is shown in the "Power Supply" box in this version of the schematic: http://learn.adafruit.com/system/assets ... inosch.png

The basic idea is that you select either the regulator or the USB 5v rail as the power source, but you only want one at a time. All other pins and traces labeled "+5v" tie back to the center pin in the header where you select the power source.
When you void a product warranty, you give up your right to sue the manufacturer if something goes wrong and accept full responsibility for whatever happens next. And then you truly own the product.
