Compiling Boost regex library

I'm having some trouble getting Boost to compile with VC++ 6.0. I followed a tutorial but bjam constantly exits saying
MkDir1 bin
spawn: No such file or directory

If anyone could tell me how to correct this or even direct me to pre-built Boost libraries for Windows then I would be most grateful.

Thanks, I just installed the patch which I'd forgotten about. But I still get just the same error.

MkDir1 boostspawn: No such file or directory

So I made the directory boost in C:\. Then I got the same error but with "lib" missing, so I made that dir inside C:\boost. Now I get the same error with "bin" missing, but I've tried making bin inside boost and boost\lib, but to no avail.

Any ideas?
