I downloaded a copy of the arduino software just to see what i was like and also viewed some of the tutorials and i really would liketo program other microcontrollers in it other that just the roboduino im gettin.. is there a way of doing this
my english teacher once said, "dont talk about what you dont know in public...."

so I replied the truth, " Exactly why I dont ever talk about English."

well, you can either burn the bootloader to the chip you are using or export a .hex file.
im not too sure about the second option but i can remember you can do the opposite so that may be possible, try googling.

only with compatable atmega microcontrollers.

you couldnt do it with a PIC or an ARM or any other devices like analog digital mcu's - only with the atmegas that arduinos use

You can use a few Tinys and some Megas with Arduino software. Even Axon is almost the same with Arduino Mega so you can use it too. Every microcontroller has to have a separate folder in Hardware/Cores and some files have to be modified accordingly (pin definitions, etc.)
Check out the uBotino robot controller!
