I try to get python2.4 installed in my cygwin system, with no success.

I need python2.4, my package (GNU Radio) does not work well with 
python2.5. I followed the directions at
and got an old package from
Now I'n not quite shure how to install this package. I put it in my 
local package directory in the same directory as the current version 
(some 2.5.x), but I could not select it in the package list of setup.exe.

Of course I could untar the file and put the files by hand in place, but 
I guess all the post-inst-script magic is missing then and I'll get in 
big trouble.

Can anyone give me a hint how to install this package in a cygwin style? 
Any command line tool like dpkg or rpm for this?
