need help getting started

Hello. I am just starting with OGRE and I can't seem to get anything running. My experience with python is only from with in Blender.
I downloaded python-ogre 1.0, and I already have python 2.5 installed.
I am running windows XP
I am trying the tutorial at and can't even get that going.

When I run the base code, it says

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\", line 1, in <module>
import ogre.renderer.OGRE as ogre
File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\ogre\renderer\OGRE\", line 10,
in <module>
from _ogre_ import *
ImportError: DLL load failed: This application has failed to start because the a
pplication configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this

In the python shell, I can import ogre, but there seems to be no ogre.renderer

the demos installed with python-ogre don't run either.

should I start with pyogre instead?
Is there any environment variables that need to be set?

Is a noob 'Start Here' page I should be looking at?
I'm sure I'll be alright once I get something started.

Thank you heaps - that fixed it :) along with downloading d3dx9_33.dll.
And now that I found that sampleframework in the demo directory (like it says in the tut) .... all is good :)
