I installed .NET 2.0 Beta, which is all that is
available via download right now.

I downloaded IronPython. Its Readme says "After
unpacking the distribution of IronPyhon, you can
complete the installation by adding the included 'bin'
directory to your PATH."

There is no 'bin' directory in IronPython 1.0 beta. 

The Readme continues: "To test your installation, you
should launch the interactive interpreter as shown

IronPython 1.0 Beta on .NET 2.0.50727.42
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights
>>> 2+2

However, if I run IronPythonConsole I get a blank
popup that says '.NET Framework Initialization Error' 

What am I doing wrong? Should I not be using the .NET
2.0 Beta? This beta is the only version of .NET 2.0
that is available online.
