My bet is you installed Python 2.2 binaries for win32...there is no
Demo/embed when you do that.  Demo/embed comes with the source
distribution for Python.  If you have MSVC++ 6.0 with patches etc. you
can compile Python on a Windows platform yourself and you can do
embedding/extending.  MSVC++ is not free, unfortunately the Python
people decided to base the Python distribution from python.org on it. 
I tried to compile Python with Borland CPP but failed, compiling
Python with Cygwin was successfull but then you need
Cygwin...www.cygwin.[org|com].  I read some other people are trying to
compile Python with the Borland compiler and i am waiting for their
posts about it.  Good luck.
