Is it possible to program Atmega chips with just a bootloaded chip?

I was wondering if i could use a atmega chip with an arduino bootloader to program other chips. I have an arduino uno, and it doesnt have ISP abilities yet due to software issues. So i want to try using a bootloaded chip to program other chips. Could i stick it into my uno to program it, and then take it out and program other chips? Just wondering :)

so i can stick a bootloaded chip into my uno, burn a sketch on it, remove it, and put it in a breadboard and program a non bootloaded chip? he used a BBB and programmers... what i am concerned about mostly is if it will work in my uno...
