Curses - Win/dos

Hello Everyone,

  I was trying to play around with curses .. and the docs say to import
curses (ofcourse) and run a few methods to setup the screen and such..

Problem is, when I do this on a WIN type of system I get:
>>> import curses
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "C:\Python22\lib\curses\", line 15, in ?
    from _curses import *
ImportError: No module named _curses

However, it works just fine on Linux (of course, curses is installed by
default on *nix)

Is there a "Curses" package I need to install for win.. or am I missing
something here?
