office, when i try to run with the --distribute option i have this

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "bootstrap.py", line 67, in <module>
    ez['use_setuptools'](to_dir=tmpeggs, download_delay=0, no_fake=True)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/urllib2.py", line 506, in http_error_default
    raise HTTPError(req.get_full_url(), code, msg, hdrs, fp)
