The Note comes just before the paragraph: "Burning the Bootloader" but after that you find the paragraph "Uploading Using an Arduino Board".
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard
In the latter, they instruct you to remove the Microprocessor from the Arduino board and in both cases 'To program the microcontroller, select "Arduino Duemilanove or Nano w/ ATmega328" '.

So, the exclusion of the Uno appears to refer to both situations.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks all for all the info!

I also ordered the kit from dipmicro as suggested.

After "talking" to you I found this tutorial, that details what you have been explaining:
http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard

What bothers me is that it says: "Note that these techniques only work with the Arduino Duemilanove w/ an ATmega328, not the Arduino Uno (or older Arduino boards w/ an ATmega168)."

Now, the one I just ordered is precisely an Arduino Uno R3, but it has an ATmega328P.

I am puzzled, will it work?

Thanks

Thanks man,
   That was fast!  smiley

Is the second part of my question also true?
I.e. can I just buy a bunch of ATmegas and plug them (one at a time of course) into the Arduino board for my next projects?

TIA

79  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Newbie question on Standalone ATMega on: April 25, 2012, 01:59:53 pm
Hello All,
  I have been interested in electronics for years but never quite become proficient.
My interest has been rekindled by the discovery of the Arduino system.
I have ordered the Uno R3 and while I am still waiting for it I have a simple question:

Once I am done with the first sketch (say, something fancy like blinking an LED) can I unplug the ATmega from the Arduino board and put it on a standalone breadboard (with the addition of the needed  LED, resistor(s) power supply ecc.) and have the LED blink away happily, while I plug a NEW ATmega on the Arduino board and work on my next great project (say, blink TWO LEDs)?


Thanks

Luca
