Hi everyone,
Can I use Arduino UNO(Not R3) as ISP.
If I can, how to hook it up.

What do you mean? Do you want to program some other device with the Uno?

No, I want to burn boot loader on another Atmel chip on a breadboard. Use with ISP sketch.
Thanks. :mrgreen:

You can do that. Try the Arduino forum.

I'm getting an error, "Programmer is not responding". I did try with and without the 10uF capacitor between Reset and Ground.

static418, the URL you posted said, as the last step, to select the menu item "Tools > Burn Bootloader > w/ Arduino as ISP." My "Tools" menu has a "Burn Bootloader", but it isn't a submenu; I can choose it but then it just goes. There is a separate menu item in Tools called "Programmer", underneath which one option is "Arduino as ISP", which I have checked. Should that work? It wasn't... Help?

I'm not really sure. What version of the Arduino IDE are you using? I'm still on .22 as I haven't gotten around to upgrading yet. There may be differences in menu structure. I'll check that this afternoon after work.
