Python preinstalled on ThinkPad

So, I'm there, unable to figure out why after installing the feedparser to the Python 2.4 install on this new laptop, I can't import it. It turns out the ThinkPad already had Python 2.2 preinstalled in C:/IBMTOOLS. It was at the top of the path, not 2.4 - I just hadn't paid attention to the version strings. Neat. I wonder what it's being used for.

PHP support, eh?

Grrr. Yes. Me too Bill

If I install Python 2.4, will the IBM software all fall over?

I'm left wondering.

I asked IBM why they don't have a user list, and they tell me its not cost effective. For them I guess, not for their users.

I installed 2.4 oblivious, and the thing seems to work, it's just that 2.2 is the default on the path.

Think I'll start doing all this through cygwin.
