PIL _imaging

Greetings PythonIstas ... 

I'm a dinosaur-age programmer trying to get started 
using Python 2.2.1 under Win98 1st ed ... 

I've installed the  wxPython  and  PMW  packages
and the  samples/demos  from both seem to run OK ... 

However, I'm having some problems trying to run demos
from the Python Imaging Library ... 

  python Samples/viewer.py ButtonD.jpg

  Leads to the bottom-line on the trace below
    ImportError: The _imaging C module is not installed ...

  There are 2 files in K:\Python\Lib\PIL\DLLs
  but apparently these are not the ones that are needed ...


PYTHONPATH is set in the  autoexec.bat  file
  set PYTHONPATH=K:\Python\Lib\PIL
  set PYTHONPATH=%PYTHONPATH%;K:\Python\Lib\PIL\Samples 

Have I blown the set_Up / search_Rules 
or do I need to look for an additional module
to install ???
