I've forgotten something really simple about DOS.

The DOS prompt is not the culprit.  Once you get to the C:\Documents and
Settings\whanson, type

cd "Application Data\lyx20"

(not sure the quotes are necessary, but they can't hurt) and see if you get
there.  If not, from the C:\Documents and Settings\whanson prompt type

cd "Application Data"
mkdir lyx20
cd lyx20

which should get you to where you need to be (C:\Documents and
Settings\whanson\Application Data\lyx20).  Once that's your prompt, run the
Python command, slapping quotes around all paths to be safe.
