Its my fault for not being clear on this. I know how to change the
directory on a command prompt in Windows. I was speaking of the Python
prompt (>>>). Once I got that, I tried running the file but got this:
Python 2.3.3 (#51, Dec 18 2003, 20:22:39) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)] on
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> python setup.py install
File "<stdin>", line 1
python setup.py install
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Hope this clears up my inability to give the correct info! :)
