I've just tried installing setuptools 0.6a6 so that I could install nose (http://somethingaboutorange.com/mrl/projects/nose/) via easy_install but I've hit a problem.
It looks like cli.exe and gui.exe are not getting installed. To check I manually downloaded both setuptools-0.6a6-py2.4.egg and setuptools-0.6a6-py2.3.egg from the cheeseshop and opened them with a Zip viewer. Sure enough the py2.4 egg contains both exes but the py2.3 one doesn't. Should the py2.3 egg include these files?
PS: Here is a transcript of my installation attempt.
