Weirdness when trying to use Boost.python

I'm planning to write a large program that will have advanced scripting in
python in which the scripter will subclass c++ objects to add
functionality. this leads me to boost.python (if you dont already know
about boost.python dont bother reading farther cause its a kind of a
technical question) anyways i embeded python in a litte c++ test app i
wrote and got it working fine. eg: i could write a little python program
and my app would load and run it. then i added boost.python to expose a
sample class to the python code. i think i know how to use boost cause i
basically followed the tutorial and the code compiles fine but the module
boost is supposedly creating doesn't exist when the code (python code) is
run . now if i use just the C python API can can interface some simple
functions but not classes. there is an api which creates the module based
on a object returned from another api. Now i cant get boost to give me that
object. since there is no readily apparent way of doing this i assumed that
boost did i t automatically but this apears not to be true. Also looking at
the boost source was just more confusing. everyting uses INSANE macros
which call other macros though 50+ include files so no help there. the
boost documentation talks about exposing classes and embedding python but
not the two together. Any ideas? Oh also just FYI: I'm running XP Prof,
using VC++ 6 SP5, Python 2.3.2, and the current CVS of Boost cause the
release only supports python 2.2.x.
