[python-win32] ASP installation strangeness

I wrote a fairly involved ASP app in Python 2.2 about a year and a half
ago. Yesterday I was installing on some new machines for a
demonstration and tried my hand at updating to python 2.3 and
The target machines were Windows XP/IIS 5.1. After intalling the
requisite python, trying to run any ASP pages the needed python
resulted in an ASP error that 'the script language python cannot be
found on the server'.
So I reinstalled pywin32-200 to no avail, restarted the box, etc.
Finally, I uninstalled IIS and reinstalled it from the XP cd,
reinstalled Python/pywin32-200 and magically everything works fine.
The second machine was XP with Service pack 1a... same routine,
although this one is still broken because I haven't reinstalled IIS
Has anyone else experienced this? There were no installation errors and
I ran the pywin32 tests related to axscript with no errors (except the
VB tests, but since I don't have VB installed that is expected)
