I'm really new to microcontrollers and I have problems with setting up a timer (timer 0 in my case)  and interrupt. For Example the prescaler, I think I didn't set it right. I want to set the prescaler to 1 ms. Is 1000-1 then right? I cannot imagine it works on only 1 Mhz. I think I made multiple mistakes in the basic configuration. Could anyone modify this to right code or help me out?

Thanks a lot
