I tried the two different ways as described in the
Preparation section in the Getting Started guide found

At my first shot:
from the regular command prompt (cmd.exe) I issued:
bjam "-sVC71_ROOT=D:\Programs\VS2003\Vc7"
"-sTOOLS=vc7.1" install

At my second shot I did the following:
1: Started the Visual Studio .Net 2003 Command Prompt.
(This sets up the enviroment with vsvars32.bat)
2: Made sure that my boost directory is included:
set INCLUDE=%INCLUDE%;D:\C++\Boost_1_31_0
3: Change directory to my boost dir:
cd D:\C++\Boost_1_31_0
4: Finally bjam "-sTOOLS=vc7.1"
"--prefix=D:\C++\Boost_1_31_0" install

Both tries resulted in the same directory-clash issue.

I tried this (i.e. the same as I did above but without
the ""-signs. No success though.) :-(
