      First install the new python using the altinstall option:

wget http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.2.2/Python-2.2.2.tgz
tar xvzf Python-2.2.2.tgz
cd Python-2.2.2
make altinstall

      This puts Python2.2 at /usr/local/bin/python2.2.  Give that location 
in the Mailman configuration.  My config statement was:

./configure  --with-mail-gid=mail --with-python=/usr/local/bin/python2.2 

      My full information on the install OUTSIDE the chrooted environment 
on Ensim 3.0 is at 
http://forums.ev1servers.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=23118 .  Farther 
down there is also a way to do it inside the chrooted.
