Another piece of info:
Jonathan Brandmeyer on the numpy discussion list has built a version of Numeric for Python 2.4 and is temporarily hosting it until an official build is done. It's version 23.6 which is only 0.1 older than 23.7 (according to my hp calculator):

Hi folks. Just setting up a new machine with Python 2.4, and wanted to
check something. Under "Installing on Windows", the Matplotlib pages at
For standard python installations, you will also need to install
either Numeric or numarray in addition to the matplotlib installer.
matplotlib provides installers for Numeric and numarray users. It is
important that you pick the matplotlib installer that corresponds to
your array package. Ie, if you mostly work with numarray arrays, use
the matplotlib numarray installer. matplotlib has a numerix setting in
the matplotlib rc file (which by default resides in
c:\python23\share\matplotlitb\.matplotlibrc) and you should make sure
this setting corresponds to your preferred array package.
However, the download page:
only differentiates installers by Python version; there's no hint which
one is for Numpy, numarray, etc. The one I grabbed
(matplotlib-0.70.1-win32.py2.4.exe) installed, but complains about not
being able to find numarray (which is installed, for Python 2.4). I'd be
happy to use Numpy, but the only releases available are for Python 2.3.
