Been there, done that, and didn't understand it. Please remember, I am a 
total novice. On Hellers page for example he says run
python setup.py py2exe.py --help and I received the error stated below 
in my original post. There *is no* setup.py in the py2exe diectory. A 
few simple guidelines would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, matthew.
