Distutils was indeed part of python-devel, which is on the dvd, but is not part of the standard installation.
Thanks for your help, Floris

my attempt to install the distutils on suse 9.0 (which provides python 2.3) fails:
Why are you installing distutils on a system that already has Python 2.3 installed? Python 2.3 normally comes with distutils as part of the Python standard library.
Did suse distribute a version of Python that had distutils removed?
It should come from python-devel
