Hi all!
I want to run the atmega 328 at 3.3V and 8mhz external clock.
So i figured, that I will use my programmer(usbasp) and connect it to the ICSP pins on the arduino uno, and burn the bootloader
for arduino pro mini (3.3V and 8mhz).
However, I am unable to do this because there are no options in the arduino IDE to burn bootloader using a programmer.

Some tutorials say that there should be a dropdown menu for the burnbootloader in tools, like
tools>burnbootloader>using usbasp  , but I just see tool>burnbootloader.
So is there a way around this problem?

The menu item above this is says "Programmer" go into that and select your programmer from the list first.

Got it
Arduino 1.0.1 does not have that option, selecting the programmer and correct board, and then just clicking burn bootloader works.
It takes a lot of time though, so i thought there might be a problem.
Thanks
