Burning sketches to the Arduino board with an exte

I need to program the arduino with no bootloader to accelerate the starting time.
I have the AVR MKII programmer and I tried to do what they recommend there:

According to this post:

you have to make this chance on the preferences.txt file
Change: upload.using from bootloader to the identifier of one of the programmers in hardware/programmers.txt (e.g. avrispmkii).

But when I look at the file it doesn't say upload.using anywhere

Any ideas?

You don't need to post the same thread in multiple places. I have responded in your other thread.

Sorry about that, I didn't know where it would be the appropriate place.
