I installed setuptools following the instructions at 
http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/EasyInstall...but then i 
realized that this package was in my repo (i'm using Debian sid). I 
tried to undo my previous installation by removing from /usr/bin and 
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages all setuptools packages/files, and 
installed python-setuptools from the repository without inconvenients. 
Now, when i try to use it, i get the following error:

# easy_install -v ZopeSkel
error: /tmp/easy_install-8zRT0t: Too many links

Please, i'm stuck here, any hints will be much appreciated.

PS: sorry for my english  :(
