Burning bootloader

I have been trying to burn the bootloader on a "virgin" ATMEGA328P-PU chip (28-pin, through-hole). but it kept failing. This is the error i got: "avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() ot in sync: resp=0x03"

I am following the step by step guide provided on this web; http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard

I am using an existing Arduino as the ISP, and have selected the "w/ Arduino as ISP" but it cant seem to be working

why is that so?

thank you for the help

Where did you place the 10µF capacitor?

between reset pin of existing Arduino and ground. (+) to reset pin (-) to ground.

After uploading the ArduinoISP sketch?
