BOOST again: how to proceed from here....

I'm trying to work with Boost, trying to use my C-code from Python..
So now I have generated a C_test2.dll and a C_test2.lib with Visual
C++ 2005, from code like this:
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdafx.h>

namespace { // Avoid cluttering the global namespace.

int my_int;   /* a global integer: or outside namespace ? */
 double calc ( double f)
    my_int = (int) (f/2);
 //   printf( "Half of %f is %d\n", f, my_int ); 
    return f/2;

#include <boost/python.hpp>

using namespace boost::python;

    def("calc", calc ); 

Now I want to use calc from Python.
I have my Python in c:\python24\ (IDLE system, version 2.4.4)
Where do I put the dll and lib ?

in c:\python24\libs and c:\python24\DLLs ?

and do I import like:
import C_test2.dll 
because now I get this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in -toplevel-
    import C_test2.dll
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
