    Here is a link to very reasonably priced programmer for the Attiny and Atmega AVR microcontrollers.

    The software that supports this programmer is free from Atmel's website. It is called AVRSTUDIO4.

    The cable from the Maker Shed is a USB - TTL converter cable. You would only
    be able to program ATmega devices that have the appropriate bootloader already in
    flash memory (like an Arduino bootloader).

    The ATAVRISP2 that was recommended is probably the device that you want.
    I bought one a few months ago and it works well. I use it with avr-gcc on Linux.
    Others use it with AVR Studio in Windows.

    So, I just realized I want to programm ATMELs connected in Breadboard, so I probably need STK 500? And does STK500 contains ATAVRISP2, too?

    The STK500 does have a built-in programmer that can also be used to program your own AVR board designs if you make sure that you have included an ISP6PIN or ISP10PIN wired programming connector.

    If you just put the six pin header wired to the ISP pinout on your board
    all you need is the ATAVRISP2. Download either avr-gcc or AVR studio.
