[CentralOH] VIM / omnicompletion

Could someone tell me (or point me to a web page) how to set up vim's omnicompletion to work with Python. I'm a relative newbie with vim.  I downloaded pythoncomplete.vim to my ~/.vim/ftplugin directory but when I do c-x, c-o while editing a .py file I get the message "omnifunc not set".  I've also tried putting this file in the ~/.vim/autoload directory.

I added the line set ofu=syntaxcomplete#Complete to my .vimrc file and now when I do c-x, c-o, I get a "Pattern not found" when it's obvious to me that the pattern should be found (i.e. the function was defined two lines above where I'm entering its name)
