For future reference, you can just tick both boxes in the installer, so that
it refers to both. There isn't really a way to uninstall just one of them.

You could do this, but the easiest thing would be to simply install 1.0rc2
over the top of 1.0rc1. There should be no problems with doing that.
Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes. This
way, you get everyone's help, and avoid a lack of replies when I'm busy.
