This should print a version and a filename. The filename should be
something like 'c:\Python24\Lib\distutils\...' (*without*
site-packages between the Lib and distutils), and the version should
be 1.0.3 or higher.
If the location is different, you haven't uninstalled it
correctly. If the location is correct but the version is less than
1.0.3, you installed the distutils over the version that came with
Python, and will have to reinstall Python to fix it.
