seems to imply that after installation I can goto a command prompt and

easy_install c:\MySQL_python-1.2.2-py2.4-win32.egg

I tried doing this in the python interpreter and on a straight "cmd"
command prompt (the site doesn't really specify). I also tried "import
easy_install" and then

easy_install c:\MySQL_python-1.2.2-py2.4-win32.egg
easy_install ("c:\MySQL_python-1.2.2-py2.4-win32.egg")

and a couple other permutations and never got it to run (error
messages for the first group were "invalid syntax" and were various
flavors of "module not callable" for the second group).
