I don't understand your difficulties. If you've got Python installed and 
want to install the "Python for Windows extensions" aka pywin32, the 
above link is the way to go.

Clicking it gets you to a Sourceforge page, where you can click 
"download" which gets you to ap page where you can choose which version 
of pywin32 build 210 you want. Choose the exe that was built for the 
Python version (e.g. 2.5) you are using, download and run it to install
