Make sure you're setting your PATH, not your PYTHONPATH variable.

 From your command-prompt, issue

   c:\test\> path

to see what your current path is.  You _should_ see your 
python2.x\bin folder in there.  If not, are you re-using the same 
command-prompt window?  I vaguely remember that it requires you 
to close the cmd window and open a new one to pick up the new 
environment-variable changes.

Alternatively, if you don't want to lose history in that 
particular window, you can update your path for that particular 
window using

   c:\test\> set path=%PATH%;c:\progra~1\python2.4\bin

or whatever your path is.
