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-
build-2.0-m11.zip inside my boost_1_33_1 directory. It contains a
bootstrap.jam file

and a new error appear:

C:\boost_1_33_1\libs\python\example\tutorial>bjam sTOOLS=vc-8_0

error: Could not find parent for project at '../../../..'
error: Did not find Jamfile or project-root.jam in any parent
directory.

In case you didn't guess... I am totally lost by now! :) If I ever get
this thing up and running.. I will write a new tutorial and send it to
boost.

Thanks!
Soren
