Maybe I don't understand your (ie., Martin's) problem, but the installation on windwos with the
binary installers is actually quite simple, no need to do builds, compilations and distutils stuff
on your own.

installing scipy and stuff.)

I used, in that order (as admin, but have also installed on a different machine w/o admin rights,
but of course only in "my documents"):
pywin32-205.win32-py2.4.exe (these are the infamous extensions mentioned above)
(can add wxPython here as well if you like)

and then for matplotlib:
Numeric-24.2.win32-py2.4.exe (should/will be unnecessary in the future)

I don't think that's what he (Martin again) wants, see above.
