    hi there,
    your first option is to use an external freeware'd programmer like
    http://www.ic-prog.com/index1.htm or
    http://www.winpicprog.co.uk/
    the hardware supported inside MPLAB is generally not of a kit nature, some efforts over the years have worked, but none stick in my mind.
    I ended up going with an ICD2, but that requires a monetry level of commitment that may be more than you're prepared to accept, in my opinion though it is worth it. same can be said for a C compiler that runs as a tool inside MPLAB.

    other programming hardware

    there are also a lot of people at www.piclist.com that can help if you havent found it yet.
