[Image-SIG] installing PIL from source kit for Python 2.6.1

PIL's using Python's standard installation framework (distutils), and
that installer requires Python to be registered (that is, linked to by
the appropriate entries in the registry) for the installer to be able
to figure out which Python versions you have on the machine, and where
they are.

If you don't want to use the standard installer, you can just unzip
the file and put the contents somewhere on the path.
