I forgot to remind people to use update -P as some files has been
removed from the repository, but this should not 'break' anything.

Running Boa in IDLE seems to be tricky :)
First remove the whitespace on the last line in Boa.py.
Also the way IDLE runs modules is not exactly the same as running
the file directly in the interpreter.
You'll have to manually add Boa's path to sys.path in the IDLE
Then it works, but you also need to hope that there are no errors
on startup because cleanup isn't always successfull. This partially
a problem with running Boa in the same interpreter as IDLE and
problems with mixing wxWindows and Tkinter.

The new help system uses the OOR features of 2.3.x so I suggest
updating your wxPython to 2.3.0.
I've not been able to work around the accelerator table bug in 2.3.1
Also, if you don't want the DOS box to close, open one explicitly
by going Start->Run->Command, cd to the Boa directory and run
it by typing: python Boa.py
Useful for reading error messages.

I will test 0.0.12 on a 98 box as soon as possible.
