Either that or you need to have the privileges to compile Apache + 
mod_python and run it on a nonprivileged port (> 1024).

mod_python works on Windows as well. The harder part is finding a web 
hoster that will host mod_python apps ( comes to mind). 
I personally find it much easier to learn about system administration 
and get my own dedicated server for EUR 39/month.
