No problem, sorry again about the delay.

Whoo hoo! I'm so happy I was not just rambling pointlessly :-)

Well, either way is fine with me too -- I just created and uploaded an
installer for Python-2.1. Biopython works just fine with 2.1, but that
version just hadn't been released yet last time we were getting our
biopython release ready, so I hadn't prepared a Windows installer.

So, you can choose either to downgrade to Python-2.0, or just use the
new installer I uploaded. There's more than 1 way to do it :-). 

Let us know if you have any other problems with anything!
