I asked this question a few days ago,
but didn't get the right answer.

Yesterday I did a very simple test, (I don't know anything about the 
file structure of SciPy)
- just install everything on own PC
- copy some extra Python24.DLL
- put everything in a inno setup install (10 lines of code)
What I see now, looks to work perfectly, and it's even portable on a USB 
stick !

I'll try to put everything this weekend on my website and let know the URL.
