'[PIC]What do I need to use my PICSTART Plus in Lin'

Thanks to everyone for your past and future support.

I have recently joined Project Phoenix, a Twin Cities chapter IEEE study
group working on an open source blood pressure monitor.  The subgroup I'm in
(data acquisition prototype group) has embedded engineering needs to program
microcontrollers.

What is spurring me to program PIC microcontrollers in Linux instead of
Windows is our laptop that runs slow with Windows XP, because it was
originally made when Windows 2000 was the prevailing Microsoft OS.  I want
to try microcontroller programming in Puppy Linux.  (I already tried with
Damn Small Linux, to no avail.)

So far, all of my PIC programming experience has been in MPLAB for Assembly
language and HI-TECH C PRO for C.  (SIDE NOTE: I could not get HI-TECH C PRO
to work in Windows 98, but I was able to get it working with Windows XP.)

What do I need as a replacement for the above Windows programs?  I have been
to http://www.gnupic.org, and I'm lost and confused.  I'm used to MPLAB, which has
several tools combined into that one program.  It's convenient, but it has
also isolated me from understanding what's going on.  I know that I need an
assembler, compiler, simulator, programmer, libraries, and IDE, but do I
also need a disassembler or interpreter?  How do I know what programs from
each of these categories will meet my needs?  Are there dependencies I need
to be aware of?
P.S.  If you live in or near the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and can solder
surface-mount components, we need your skill.  More information on Project
Phoenix is at http://www.phoenix.tc-ieee.org/

appreciate strong leads.

By the way, I am not actively seeking a new position.  Thanks everyone
for your help in finding a new engineering position.  I have since
moved from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to central Minnesota about 60 miles west
of Minneapolis, where I am doing RF engineering work and hope to get
into more embedded engineering work, which will involve Atmel
microcontrollers.

I have since deleted that line from my signature.  (It has been some
time since I last used my Gmail account to send a message.)

Visit http://home.pacbell.net/theposts/picmicro/ for the picstart
programmer software.. May need some updating for some devices but it
has more supported chips than the alternatives.

Step 1 is to remove puppy Linux. Seriously. Install Arch Linux. You'll
have a lot few problems, it will run fast and well and cleanly.

However, the following google search:

Why can't I program PIC microcontrollers with Puppy Linux?  Admittedly,
Puppy Linus may not be up to the job, but I won't know until I try some
programs.  If Puppy Linux doesn't work, I'll try Arch Linux.  This is an
argument for multi-booting.  I'll just use Puppy Linux on one partition and
Arch Linux on another.

Comparison of operating systems is best done in [OT].

Thanks,
