I am looking for a place to get a Atmega 1284 with the boot loader already installed in Australia

I know RS sell them but they wouldn't have the boot loader would they?

Any help would be much appreciated, an the alternative I am looking into is buying a USB to parrel port adapter then making a 6 pin ISP connector for it

Buy a proper ISP instead.

USB to parallel converters aren't a true parallel port, and so "bit-banging" the USB parallel port to program the 1284 (or any chip) won't work.

There's are a whole heap of cheap USB ISP's available from companies like Freetronics (in Aus), Little Bird Electronics (in Aus), Sparkfun or Adafruit.

Note: I help maintain the forum for Freetronics - though I don't actually work for them or get paid to do it.
