Hi Tony!

You have to use a (C-API) compatible Numpy version which should be 
numpy-1.0b1.win32-py2.4.exe for your scipy download. ...but it seems 
like this is no longer available on SF for download. If you don't want 
to compile yourself you may also give http://code.enthought.com/enthon/ 
a try.

The download page on the wiki is not pointing out this C-API 
compatibility issue clearly. To avoid confusion it would be good to add 
the numpy version which was used for compiling scipy into the name of 
the binary in the future. E.g.
