[IMAGE-SIG] Decoding Jpegs

I am running Red Hat Linux 4.2 
I installed  the IJG Jpeg Library Ver 6 from the Sig home page
I am using Python 1.5

I keep geting the following errors attempting to save/show jpegs


Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/local/lib/python1.5/Imaging/Lib/Image.py", line 353, in save
  File "/usr/local/lib/python1.5/Imaging/Lib/ImageFile.py", line 148, in load
    d = _getdecoder(d, e, a, self.decoderconfig)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python1.5/Imaging/Lib/ImageFile.py", line 49, in _getdecoder
    raise IOError, "decoder %s not available" % d
IOError: decoder jpeg not available

Does this mean I have incorrectly installed the jpeg libarary or is the image library inco
mpatible with Python 1.5?

Any help would greatly be appreciated.
