Coming back to you ..
I did download the exe and try to install it but without success .. The 
installation went well, but when I import scipy, the editor (PythonWin 
or Idle) just crash ..
I hadn't the time (and maybe the "fighting spirit" !!) to compile the 
sources, so I just went back to Python 2.3 and adapt my scripts.
Thanks anyway for your help ..
