I use the Propeller Tool, load the hex and hit F11 to flash the eeprom with the code. Just make sure the PropTool is pointing to the correct com port.

You aren't dealing with a basic stamp you are dealing with a Propeller. Besides budude's suggestion you could try Propellent (http://www.parallax.com/Portals/0/Downloads/sw/propeller/Propellent-v1.3.zip).
