Hello,

I just downloaded the 2001-03-28 build of MySQLdb (version 0.3.5 ) from
http://home.t-online.de/home/err666/ (thanks Gerhard!) and issued the
command:

python setup.py install

using ActivePython (build 203) on a Windows 98 (2nd edition) computer.

Below is the result.  Any suggestions about what I'm doing wrong.  Thanks.
