Python 2.4 Uninstall Entry in WinXP Registry

Python 2.3 placed a registry key under:

'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Python2.3'

When this key was removed, Python no longer appeared in the Windows 'Add 
Remove Programs' list. We would remove this registry key to keep users 
from uninstalling the software accidentally.

Python 2.4 does not use this registry entry on the two machines I have 
installed it on... any tips on how to locate this?

Thanks,
Brad
