Thanks to Michiel and Travis for their suggestions.  I am using Windows 
XP and get the following result:

    C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\Numeric3\Download>python setup.py
    config --compiler=minw32
    running config
    error: don't know how to compile C/C++ code on platform 'nt' with
    'minw32' compiler


I would welcome any comments.
