Minor nit in Py24 installer: Deselecting register extensions de-registers existing associations

Yes, yes, I know I should just wait for SourceForge to come up so I can 
file a bug report, but that's going to be hours, and I'll be knee-deep 
in Gentoo by then.

Just did an all-users install of Python 2.4a3 on Win2ksp4 where Python 
2.3.4 and Python 2.2 are installed.  Overwrote already-installed Python 
2.4a1.  Switched "register extensions" to the "X Not available", as I 
wanted to keep Python 2.3.4 as the default association for .py files.

After installation, there are *no* associations with Python files, that 
is "assoc .py" on the command line shows that there's no "Python" file 
type remaining.

Have fun,
