Hi Roel,
RTFM man! Only connect the ground.
The STK300 has a more or less separated supply for the external headers,
suspect the STK200 works the same.
If you blow the 78L05 only the RS232 and (if conected) the LCD display
are without power,the rest of the board runs either 5 or 3.3V from the 317.

Cheers Theo.
