    Hello,
    I am looking to play around with some micro-controllers and have bought a
    ATtiny2313 chip. I also have access to an arduino and a FTDI FT232RL usb cable. I do not know how I will program / flash the ATtiny 2313 chip.
    Is it possible to use the FTDI cable to flash a ATtiny2313 chip?
    Otherwise I will have to use the arduino. I have goggled and know this is possible but I am having difficulty finding a simple explanation on how to do this. I would be interested if anyone has any simple instructions on how to do this.
    I feel a bit out of my depth but am willing to learn.
    Thank you for any help,
    K.

    Thanks for the link, I had found others but no this one!
    update;
    I went through your link and ended up at a tutorial.
    http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoISP
    This tutorial is to program an arduino with another arduino.
    As I have a ATtiny2313 chip to 'program' am I able to
    use the same method as above or do I need to do something
    different as I am trying to flash / program a different chip?
    Thanks,
    K.

    I suggest you maybe start at the beginning, otherwise you are going to get frustrated. Find a micro controller tutorial and work through it. Familiarise yourself with the datasheet for the 2313, available from Atmels website.
