There doesn't seem to be an MSI anywhere.
I downloaded the zipped source from here.
Some basic instructions for working with source files (of course, unzip it first):
Put the source files in your "site-packages" directory - on my system it's "D:\Python24\Lib\site-packages"
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. import twill  #or what ever it's called
doesn't work, then also put in the site-packages directory a text file with a '.pth' extension. All you need it that file is the name of the twill directory - no quotes. Now python will automatically search (and find) the package that you are trying to import.

Have fun!

[EDIT - I've tried to attach it here, but it's too large. If you are having trouble decompressing the tar ball, send me a Personal Message (click my name here and the "send a private message to bartonc") and I'll send you a zip file.]
