The TIP102 has a Vceo "collector to emitter breakdown voltage" of 100 VDC as aposed to 60 Volts for the TIP120.  thats pretty much the only major difference.  switching anything under 40 Volts, i would just use what ever you find easiest to get your hands on.

I haven't received my first Arduino board yet, "still waiting for that little package from SparkFun", but from what I see on all the pictures, it looks like they all have the 6 pin ISP connector on them.   You'll need Atmel's in circuit programmer or a similar clone in order to use the Adurino board as a programming platform for blank chips.

Will this work for you?  you can buy it for $49.00.  I have two of them at work, no one has written I2C sniffer code for it that I know of yet but it works for many common tasks in the lab.

the PICkit Serial Analyzer from Microchip
