Thanks for your help, Mike.

On running "python setup.py install" in the extracted directory, I get this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 16, in <module>
    metadata, options = get_config()
  File "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\MySQL-python-1.2.2\setup_windows.py",
line
 7, in get_config
    serverKey = _winreg.OpenKey(_winreg.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,
options['registry_ke
y'])
WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified
