Hi again :P

   I'm having trobles trying to install Kid template with
easy_install. Don't know if is a problem related with kid package or
something else.

  Here is the output of the error:

# easy_install kid

The package setup script has attempted to modify files on your system
that are not within the EasyInstall build area, and has been aborted.

This package cannot be safely installed by EasyInstall, and may not
support alternate installation locations even if you run its setup
script by hand.  Please inform the package's author and the EasyInstall
maintainers to find out if a fix or workaround is available.
