plasTeX doesn't work for me in cygwin.

I have what appears to be the latest Python available for cygwin, 
namely: Python 2.4.3 (#1, May 18 2006, 07:40:45)

I get the following error when I try to run plastex (from the directory 

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./plastex", line 4, in ?
import plasTeX
ImportError: No moudle named plasTeX

The release notes for plasTeX say it "now works" with Python 2.5. Does 
this mean it does NOT work with Python 2.4.3, and that's the error? Or 
something else?
