perhaps someone can help me with this win32 install win95 osr2, python
1.5.2 final.

1) do I need to uninstall rel10?
2) is the process
        a) unzip to a temporary dir
        b) run python tools/installtool.py
        c) if so I get the error

                C:\>cd \tmp\llnl\tools

                C:\Tmp\LLNL\Tools>python installtool.py
                Traceback (innermost last):
                File "installtool.py", line 130, in ?
                File "installtool.py", line 33, in do_install
                if MODE == None:
                NameError: MODE
