Well, I've decided to try to work on my microcontrollers again, but i need some help setting up my clone PICkit2. I am trying to connect all the pins up, but I don't know what exactly they are. These are the labels on the PICkit:
VPP
VCC
GND
PGD
PGC
PGM
The VPP and VCC were easy enough, but I don't know what to do with the rest. By the way, I am using PIC10F200's. Can someone help me out?

Take a look at the data sheet for your PIC to get the pin numbers.
The labels on the PICkit can be confusing as Microchip do not seem to be consistent with their pin names but for the PIC10F200 the pin names translate as follows

VPP = $\small\overline{MCLR}$ /VPP
VCC = VCC
GND = VDD
PGD = ICSPDAT
PGC = ICSPCLK
PGM = Not used or connected on the PIC10F200. Can be used for Low Voltage Programming in chips that support that function.

I think it should be like this:
VPP = GP3/MCLR/VPP
VCC = VDD
GND= VSS
PGD = GP0/ICSPDAT
PGC= GP1/ICSPCLK
PGM not connected

VDD, VSS, VEE and VCC are expained here:

Correct!
Got my Vdd Vss and Vcc in a muddle. But I knew what I meant even if my fingers typed it wrong.
