Programming bootloader with Arduino?

I noticed in 0018 that in the tools menu there is an option to program the arduino bootloader with an arduino. I can't seem to find any documentation on how that would work, can anyone point me in the right direction (assuming that it does what I think it does!)

Cheers!

In 0018 there is an example called ArduinoISP

That should tell you what you need to know. Turns it into an AVRISP basically.

That page gives you instructions on how to wire it up in various ways.

Hope this helps

Cool, thanks for that, means I don't have to invest in a specific programmer now and can just buy the chips.

Cheers!!
