    I built Usbasp and it worked just fine. You just need to have some means of programming the chip the first time. Works just fine with avrdude.

    But if you have a hardware serial port (not usb-rs232 converter) then you can use ponyprog´s SIProg to program your chips. It is just a few components and it works with avrdude as well.

    I use a USBtiny, cost me ~£11 or there abouts with a few 328p uCs bundled in, in addition to a 10/6 pin converter. Note that the USBtiny cannot program all AVRs.

    Not worth the hassle building in my opinion. I used to build my own programmers, but I do not think it was worth the effort anymore.

    Not when you can get a serial programmer for $29 and the Assembly software is free from Atmel!!!

    Of course, serial ports are disappearing...

    I actually paid £16.99 for the USBtiny with 3 ATMEGA328Ps. That is $27.99.

    I use WinAVR, which has been great.

    You can turn an Arduino into ISP programmer.. then you would also have an Arduino at hand.
    Just google Arduino ISP
