downloading eggs

i'm trying to just download the turbogears eggs without installing it. i've
read the turbogear install instructions and the easy_install help.
from the easy_install web site:

If you have another machine of the same operating system and library versions
(or if the packages aren't platform-specific), you can create the directory of
eggs using a command like this:

easy_install -zmaxd somedir SomePackage

i tried this:
C:\python\turbogears>easy_install -zmaxd TurboGears TurboGears
Processing TurboGears
error: Couldn't find a setup script in TurboGears
C:\python\turbogears>easy_install -zmaxd . TurboGears
Processing TurboGears
error: Couldn't find a setup script in TurboGears

on the turbogears mailing list, someone posted this:

You could even do "easy_install -zmaxd TurboGears" at home to just
download the files and then bring in the files on a usb key and then
"easy_install -f . TurboGears" from the usb drive.
i tried this:

C:\python\turbogears>easy_install -zmaxd TurboGears
error: No urls, filenames, or requirements specified (see --help)
i copied the ez_setup.py file from turbogears and tried the commands against
that script but it didn't work. i'm using setuptools-0.6c2 if that is helpful
to anyone.
thanks,

bryan
