Hi All,

I am supposed to make a small application using a Django Framework of a Python. I have already installed and using Python 2.5, But I am not able to set up a Django in a Windows, as I am not able to find out the windows installer in net, what I am getting is only linux installer in http://www.djangoproject.com/download.

I am trying to follow up the instruction provided in http://effbot.org/zone/django.htm,
 "Installing Django on Windows in less than 5 minutes". 

The steps what it is telling is:
Assuming you have Python 2.4 or Python 2.5, exemaker,
and the svn Subversion command-line client.
Python 2.5 # In a command line window, do:

cd C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages
svn co http://code.djangoproject.com/svn/django/trunk/django

cd django\bin
exemaker django-admin.py
Setting up Django # Create a work directory, and use django-admin to create a project directory in there.

mkdir c:\mytest
cd c:\mytest
django-admin startproject myproject

I have downloaded 'exemaker-1.2-20041012.zip' and 'svn-win32-1.5.4_py25.zip' from net but I didn't able to get how to use 'svn-win32-1.5.4_py25.zip', inorder to execute below commands successfully. Is  'svn-win32-1.5.4_py25.zip' is a correct package what I have downloaded, as I can found many packages at http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ProjectDocumentList?expandFolder=254&folderID=91
cd C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages
svn co http://code.djangoproject.com/svn/django/trunk/djangoI am stuck here, Any advice or direction is really appreciable.
