heh.  just discovered that my ISP has introduced a new
policy: if you send stupid messages, we'll knock you off
the net for 30 minutes...

anyway, I've now downloaded the installer, and it works
pretty well...


just one weird thing:

according to dir, I have 41 megs on my C: disk before
running the installer...

according to the installer, I have 22.3 megs, but Python
only requires 18.3 megs, so it should be okay...

but a little later, the installer claims that it needs an
additional 21.8 megs free space...  if I click ignore, the
installer proceeds (but boy, is it slow or what? ;-)

after installation (but before reboot) (reboot!?), I have
19.5 megs free.


after uninstalling, I have 40.7 megs free.  there's still
some crud in the Python20\Tools\idle directory.

after removing that stuff, I have 40.8 megs free.

close enough ;-)

on a second run, it claims that I have 21.3 megs free, and
that the installer needs another 22.8 megs to complete in-


without rebooting, IDLE refuses to start, but the console
window works fine...
