  The "Modules" directory is part of the Python source distribution.
If you used the installer, you don't have it.  I'll try to make that
more clear in the extension manual.
  Instructions on building a DLL on Windows are included in the
extension manual in the most recent releases.  See the online version
at http://www.python.org/doc/ext/building-on-windows.html for
information on using the "compile.py" script David Ascher pointer
created and mentioned earlier in this thread.  If you need further
help or find the instructions insufficient, please do not hesitate to
ask or otherwise point out limitations to the documentation.
