Why do you say this won't work on Windows NT?

It shouldn't be difficult to subclass CGIHTTPServer to run Python scripts
when requests for them are received.  I seem to remember running it on both
W98 and NT platforms without undue trouble, so surely the only problem is
ensuring your Python scripts actually get run in a Python environment.

What am I missing?

Helping people meet their information needs with training and technology.
