Python 2.4 / WinXP / distutils error (cookbook example)

I've installed Python 2.4 on Windows XP and walked through the Alex
Martelli ASPN cookbook example at:

This is a recipe for a simple extension type for Python.  When I try to
build and install it, however, I get an error:

   c:\temp\el>python install
   running install
   running build
   running build_ext
   error: The .NET Framework SDK needs to be installed before
   building extensions for Python.

I have Visual Studio .NET Professional installed.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
