If you've already downloaded py20 from pythonware, you can copy all PIL
related files over from c:\py20 to the equivalent place in your c:\Python20
directory. (I believe the files are something like PIL.pth, the entire PIL
subdirectory, _imaging.dll and _tkimaging.dll.)

If you haven't already downloaded py20 and you don't want all the extra's
it gives, you might want to grab the one of the win32 versions available at
http://piddle.sourceforge.net/PIL/ and unzip it under your c:\python20
