Thorsten Trenz has a spartan-II development board with download cable included for 99?. I am confident that he will sell you a seperate download cable on request, albeit it is not listed in his shop.

Please don't. The cable has lots of flaws. Search this newsgroup about that topic. Design your own cable. With heavy schmitt triggers added. And sell that. You can use a 1$ cpld and use seperate pins for the schmitt-trigger feedback. There also is an open source usb downloadcable available somewhere on the net.
