Googling for the error message will find you the answer.  I
don't remember what it is, but that's how I found it. IIRC,
it's the very first in when you google Usenet.  You need to
tell py2exe to include some module-or-other that it doesn't by
default.  I don't remember the exact recipe, but I've got it at
work. If you can't figure it out by tomorrow, let me know and
I'll post a snippet from my file.
