I sympathize, but SOME level of system administration is indispensable --
either you do it yourself or have somebody else do it.

There is no current beta right now (the stuff in CVS is pre-alpha, not
even an alpha yet), though there are releases.

To build python22_d.dll, don't touch Python's CVS -- just download the
tarball (tgz file) for Python 2.2.2 (early next week -- you could download
2.2.1 right now, but wait a few days and you'll get a better, even more
solid release...), unpack it (e.g. with winzip if you're on windows), open 
the supplied MSVC++6 workspace, set options to your liking, and build.

The source distribution of (released) Python helps you on Windows just
as it does on Unix-like platforms etc.
