Housebreaking a Chihuahua puppy

I have suddenly found myself in possession of a 6 month old Chihuahua puppy.  How do I properly discipline him for doing his business inside?  He's really timid and tiny and I don't want to scare him to death, but I also don't want to spend the next 20 years cleaning up messes.

I am currently taking him out every hour and a half and waiting until I see him go, and at night he is in his crate, but we've still had a few accidents.  How do I get it through his head that going inside is verboten?
