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
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...
