I have never managed to install pip before (not that I have tried very hard) 
but following
your instructions I seemed to have installed it successfully, using Windows 
Server 2003,
IE8, and python 3.3.

I used it to install IPython, with the following results.

First I ran 'pip install ipython', which worked.

Then I read the IPython docs, which gave the following command to install 
Notebook -
    'pip install ipython[notebook]'

That seemed to work, but when I ran 'ipython notebook' it failed on 'import 

I ran 'pip install pyzmq', tried again, and it failed on 'import jinja2'.

I used pip to install that, then it failed on 'import tornado'.

I used pip to install that, and now it seems to be working.

Now I understand why 'pip' is so popular - despite the above hiccups, it 
felt very smooth.

Thanks for the instructions, Tim - much appreciated.
