"There seems to only be an egg for Python 2.5 on Windows. Try with Python 2.5 on Windows for now, and it should work, yet I agree having two versions of Python can really put you in a horrible situation sometimes. Also, the package is MySQL-python and not MySQLdb.

Ah, looks like the error is caused because MySQLdb does not exist. They need a better error message I think. Furthermore, to use setup.py install on windows, we need to install the "Developer Components" during the MySQL server setup, and I think we must use MySQL 5.0 but I'm not sure.
