All the info you should need is on Brads tutorials :)

heres the Assembly code for the flashing LED. Your still need to download MPLAB (compiler) to turn the code into HEX file so you can then use your pickit2 to load the HEX file onto your microchip.

MPLAB IDE v8.70 can be downloaded from the bottom of this page
http://www.microchip.com/stellent/idcpl ... t=SW007002

Heres the asm file (ZIP) from Brads flashing LED tutorial2:

I downloaded the MPLAB and I opened the source code on it but how do I turn it into a hex file?

Thanks that tutorial helped me understand a lot of things but I still don't quite know what to do after I opened the source code by MPLAB IDLE, I mean how do I copy it to the pickit2

You certainly can!

you just need to have the pickit2 connected as the image shows above. It does not matter that the microcontroller is still in the circuit :)
