Edited on 7th December,2009:
Dear Blogger, If you burn your feed with feedburner then above submission 
feeds/posts/default or feeds/posts/default?alt=rss can give you sitemaps errors. For solution you can use any one of the following urls:
feeds/posts/default?redirect=false or
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=100
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=101&max-results=100
atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=201&max-results=100 
more.....
start-index indicates index of your blog posts. It depends on your no of exisiting blog post.

I can't submit sitemap that way, maybe because I'm using FeedBurner. Have to use atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=100 instead.

Hi AssassinX189,
You are right. Google Webmaster tool now shows errors for /feeds/posts/default submission. As solution you can use alternatively /feeds/posts/default? redirect=false or atom.xml?redirect=false&start-index=1&max-results=100. Anyway thanks a lot for your query.
