Can I use it to program the chip on an Arduino board with the FTDI interface?
Hmm. It looks like the PicKit has got a UART mode, so with the right connections it may work. I haven't tested it. Which Arduino board do you have? Why not just use the USB interface?
I want to use a pair of barebones arduinos in my project, to cut costs.
I just wanted to know if I can use my existing programmer, or if I'd have to buy a programmer.
So would the $15 pocket AVR programmer from Sparkfun be able to burn the bootloader?I do have a couple of unburnt ATMegas in transit.

Yes, you can.
