I need to sleep...
Disregard the bottom part of the message below!
I was testing using the wrong URL, it should be:
but I did not type in the viewcvs.cgi part because I have been working
with the roundup issue tracker for the last few weeks and that URL
just ends with a slash. I just mixed up my typing.

Good news is that the ViewCvs installer now seems to work for both
Apache and IIS and any of Python versions 2.1 to 2.3.

Good night,
