Hmm, I see I forgot to install boost-build .. all i did was install
boost_1_33_1.exe.. thought it had it all. Now I have unzipped boost-

error: Could not find parent for project at '../../../..'
error: Did not find Jamfile or project-root.jam in any parent
In case you didn't guess... I am totally lost by now! :) If I ever get
