And I had not fully read your email because I did not see that you
manually copied the file to system32, hence my short answer.

Yes. And as Glyph suggested you should use the right version I am
using pyopenssl 0.8 (from sourceforge oct 2008) with OpenSSL 0.9.8i
(from the installer I pointed to)
If using the installer I pointed to earlier, make sure you answer
"copy to /bin" instead of copy to system32 (as Glyph stated above)

Yep. You installed the libraries for python 2.5 only (see the names of
the files) so you should use python 2.5 if you want to be able to
import them.

I am currently working on Vista without problem.
