I just tried it on a win98 + JDK w/o any problem.

Possible cause:
1. I'm using JDK1.3 vs JRE, do you have to use JRE?
2. When I invoke the installer, I used full path c:\jdk1.3\bin\java
3. It tried to install into C:\windows\jython-2.0a1, I changed it to

You might try jython-user/jython-devel mailing list, providing more info and
ask for help.

Good luck,
