A little more information would help.  For example, did you use the 
Windows Installer (ScientificPython-2.4.6.win32-py2.3.exe) or did you 
compile from source (ScientificPython-2.4.6.tar.gz).

And how have you installed NetCDF?

Have a look at the start of the MMTK installations instructions, using 
the windows installers:


If you want to do this "the hard way" and compile the source code, then 
I know this can be done with MS Visual C++ 6.0
