[Image-SIG] Problem installing PIL.

I'm having problems getting PIL to work.  I'm using Windows 98 and Python
v2.0.  After installing PIL, I can access the various modules OK, but
whenever I actually try to do some image processing I get the message "C
_imaging Library is not installed"

For example:

import Image
im = Image.open("D:\\myPic.bmp")

error - "C _imaging Library is not installed".

There is an _imaging.dll file included in the download, as far as I can
tell, it is in the Python path.  What more installation does it need?

Hope you can help.
