CGI problems in Personal Web Server

I have weird problems getting Python 2.0 CGI to work in my Personal 
Web Server (Microsoft). All I get is "Internal server error ".

The funny thing is that I had CGI with Python 1.6 running just fine 
only two days ago. I had the Active State distribution installed, and 
I had changed the necessary registry setting. Everything worked 
perfectly.

Then I uninstalled 1.6 and installed 2.0 instead, but now it's
impossible to get CGI working in PWS. Even stranger, the section
in the registry that controls this has stopped having any effect
at all. A long while ago I got CGI with perl working by changing
these registry settings - and offering a heard or two of goats... -
but now perl CGI keeps running even if I delete that part of
the registry. It simply doesn't matter what I do. The before
crucial registry settings have stopped having any relevance 
whatsoever. Perl CGI runs along happily, and Python CGI is 
impossible to activate.

Anyone has any idea what could be happening, and what I should
try next?

(BTW: I have restarted my machine - running Windows 98 - several
times...)
