I have just discovered that the Butterfly and Dragon are in stock in Digikey. Unfortunately, I don't exactly know what other parts/wires are needed to get up and running. I know that unlike the STK500 the Dragon does not come programing cables but this is all I know. I've done searches for what type of cable to use but Im a little confused.

You'l need a standard A/B USB cable and optionally, 6, 8, 10 and 40 pin dual inline male headers on 0.1" spacing, 6 & 10 pin cables (the type used in the STK500 for I/O connections), a 40 pin dual inline socket and a good selection of jumper wires.

With the exception of the USB cable, exactly what you will need will depend on what you want to do with the Dragon.

Sorry about this. I should have been more specific. The ISP and the JTAG need the 6 and 10 pin dual inline male header cables. The Butterfly should be able to be programmed using either one of these above methods.
