Probably. This problem should be gone.
I suggest you remove your build and dist directory, and try again.
If this doesn't help, completely remove the python22\lib\site-packages\py2exe
directory, install  py2exe again and it should work.

I had no problems building your sample with py2exe-0.3.3 and python2.2.1
(although I use win2k, you seem to use win98).
