try the sparkfun library
ATMEGA168
there are only 10 types of people
them that understands binary
and them that doesn't

also look at the electrofun website http://www.electrofunltd.com/p/arduchip.html
the arduchip is quite a cheap solution

All you really need is the ATMega328 or 328P, a resonator for the clock and a 0.1 cap from +5 to ground. You can build it on a breadboard and use an Arduino board as an ISP to load either the bootloader or a sketch. I have one running on a breadboard that I talk to through a serial port and it functions just like my Arduino board.
