    I am working on my circuit in which I am using a 89c2051 controller.
    On PCB I have connected following pins to controller
    2)Xtal1 & xtal2 to oscillator and capacitors
    3) GND
    4) All those 4 port pin that I am using to trigger transistors
    Now my question is do I need to do something to RST or any other pin,
    Or just live them open circuited...?
    Thank You in advance.

    Datasheet should contain the basic circuit that is needed to operate the uC. Just copy it.

    "Reset input. All I/O pins are reset to 1s as soon
    as RST goes high. Holding the RST pin high for
    two machine cycles while the oscilla
    tor is running resets the device.
    Each machine cycle takes 12 oscillator or clock cycles."

    Since you don't know where your Reset is floating (high or low), you want to give it a defined value. Since you don't want the device constantly reset, you want it connected to ground.
