Installing Python 2.2.1 on WinNT

Thanks for the feedback Armin, that tells me there must be something
about my install of NT that's not quite right (or at least, not quite
the same as everyone else).

I assume that the download file is OK because it installed fine
on 95, 98, ME, 2K, and XP without problems.

In fact, I have just found that if I install Office 2000 first, the
python install on my NT works cleanly.   There must be some magic that 
the Office install does, maybe a DLL update, or permission change, that 
allows it to work.

Thanks again!
