Thank you for your help.  I assumed the tutorial was up to date because the
author specified that Python 2.0 was needed for the example to work.  I
browsed Mark Hammond's site and think I can use some of the info there.
However, I looked at his lecture notes from a conference he gave in 2000,
and he mentions the "import ni" as well.  I'll try to see if I can get his
win32 book.  That might clear things up.
