For what it's worth (and so far it only works on a win* machine, we use
the following cheap programmer with our ST M29F040B parts. Works a
treat, but programming through the lpt port is not the fasted.

The fact that only windows is supported is also a bit of a bummer.

but what else can you do? Can you afford a flash burner? The set of
who can afford this is smaller than the set of people who can hot plug.

I had not realized however that hot plug is such a big issue, so 
suggestions for alternatives that are affordable would be great
