Out of curiosity: where did you obtain the operating system, and where
will you obtain a C compiler for the platform? To my knowledge,
Microsoft has released neither, yet.

Alternatively to that approach, you can use the Python 2.4 code base,
and build an MSI file (using Tools/msi); no need for any external
tool except for a platform SDK installation, and PythonWin.
