The same Windows installer for Python works on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT and
2000.  Not CE.  If you're going to use 1.5.2 or 1.6, you'll need
administrator privileges to install on NT or 2000; in Python 2.0 (currently
in final release testing; http://www.pythonlabs.com/) you do not.

Sure!  For one, you'll be using Windows <wink>.  Seriously, your question is
too broad to even guess at what you're concerned about.  Be more specific,
if you can.
