I've read it yesterday and once more today after a good nights sleep but still can't figure out something usefull from that site.

Not being able to understand what "resp=0xfe" is I don't know what is my problem and how I can solve it.
As a test I took mini-pro out of the arduino uno and the response was still the same "resp=0xfe" .
Meaning what? that the arduino Uno isn't responding to the IDE/avrdude?

Can someone direct me to a person that has experience with bootloaders on mini-pro ?
Or should I ask my questions elsewhere ?

Oby_One, I use ProMinis a lot and have burnt bootloaders to them many times.  For programming I power the ProMini at 5V, irrespective of whether it's a 3.3V or 5V model.  It doesn't seem to do any damage to the voltage regulator.  If ArduinoISP isn't working for you, I'd suggest trying Nick Gammon's excellent alternative sketch on the page already referenced.  I'm sure you can adapt his instructions to the ProMini pin-out.

Sorry about my english :)

As for nick gammons alternative, I don't get what's different from what I do.
