GD/gdmodule on Win XP

Hi All,

I'm trying to setup matplotlib (http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/) in
a Win XP box.

I have two questions:

1. How do I install the GD Lib (http://www.boutell.com/gd)? The zip
contains a compiled dll. Is it enough to put it in /Windows/System32?

2. The python interface to GD at
http://newcenturycomputers.net/projects/gdmodule.html (gdmodule) has a
setup.py script for Linux systems. Is there any windows/multiplatfor
version? I tried to hack it including the /Windows/systm32 dir in the
libdirs variables and renaming the dll file to gd.dll, but the script
doesn't work either.

Thank you in advance.

Ed.
