Hi. If you don't have any Python 2.2 dependencies or just
want to try Python out you might find it less frustrating to
download ActivePython 2.1. For me(using Win98 2nd Ed.)
even the Windows Scripting Host worked out of the box.
I've even been using my COM servers on Win98 using
ActivePython with no problems at all.
At least on my system the ActivePython .msi file
installed with no glitches and everything worked
"Only choice is an oxymoron."
