the download links and faq link don't seem to be working properly. What gives? :)

Unfortunately, we have yet to build new binaries for windows. This issue should be fixed in the next week.

Want to add to the Windows XP SP2 install instructions --
Followed this:

Download Python:
http://python.org/ftp/python/2.5.2/python-2.5.2.msi

Download Pygame:
http://www.pygame.org/download.shtml
I'm using python 2.5.2 so I downloaded that version of PyGame. Make sure the install version of Python and the version of PyGame are as close as possible.

Download the GASP 0.2 beta1.tar for Windows
http://dev.laptop.org/pub/gasp/releases/SOURCES/python-gasp-0.2.0beta1.tar.bz2
Extracted it to my site-packages directory. Something like: C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages. Make the directory match what is on your system

In a command line window, navigate to the above installed directory.
Example: C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\python-gasp-0.2.0beta1
At the prompt, type: python setup.py install
It will run through the install,
Test it by opening a interactive Python session and typing: from gasp import *
You should get the >>> prompt!
