I've downloaded and installed the latest version of cygwin which comes with
Python 2.3.3. The install instructions at 


say to unpack the SciPy-binary for cygwin in 


which I did. The binary includes the folders


Since I'm new to the cygwin thing I really don't know if that was the whole
installation (sry for this obviously stupid question).

When I try to

   >>> import scipy

I get error-messages like

    File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/scipy/__init__.py", line 36, in ?
          from scipy_base import *
    File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/scipy_base/__init__.py", line
110, in ?
          raise ImportError, mess
    ImportError: dlopen: Win32 error 126

OK, now what does that mean ?? I really hope that someone can give me a
little hint :-) 

thx, bye.
