Even in a command window it's not working for me:

C:\Documents and Settings\Kirby>d:\python24\python
Python 2.4b1 (#57, Oct 15 2004, 15:23:38) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> help(decimal)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
NameError: name 'decimal' is not defined

Could it be that my Python23 version in d:\python23, and in the Windows
PATH, is intercepting some boot process?

Anyone else out there using Python 2.4b1 on Windows?

Py2.4 or Py2.4b1?
