PIL cannot open TIFF image in Windows

I have installed PIL 1.1.5 on Windows with Python 2.4. I'm unable to open .tiff
images that I can open and view using Windows Explorer. In other words, this
simple test fails:

import Image
im = Image.open('small.tif')

with an 'cannot identify image file' error message. I'm able to open .jpg
images. Is PIL's support for TIFF images dependent on something else in Windows?
