This would be exactly the same for any version of Python; while the 
distutils create UI does suck, the problem has nothing to do with Python 

I'm guessing you built it from source?  If so, and as with every version 
of Python, you really just need the 'InstallPath' set appropriately, but 
probably also want the PythonPath to be setup like other versions.
