You don't need a hardware programmer. Roboduino can be used as a hardware programmer to program a blank mega328 installed on a breadboard with just a crystal, caps, pull up resistor and ISP connections. You will use the regulated 5V from Roboduino to power the mega328. Take a look here:

What is the webbotlib anyway and is it a problem if the 168 isn't supported by it? ???

See http://webbot.org.uk
The 168 is supported but you wont fit much onto it - hence ATMega328P gives you at least another 16k for your own program.

Dude, just get a Roboduino and start working with it! After you fill up the mega168, you will have enough experience to burn a bootloader in a blank 328. Admin was right in the previous post that you will need a hardware programmer if you decide to use Webbotlib, as you need the space the bootloader is using. So just get a board, start using it with Arduino, build a robot, then go for something more complicated.

yeah, i think i'll just use the stock atmega 168 that comes with roboduino and think about the 328 with webbot compatibility later, i think 16k is more than enough for this build.  :)
