[Moin-user] Trouble setting up MoinMoin on Fedora core 5

I am trying to install MoinMoin 1.5.6 on Fedora Core 5. I followed the 
instructions as well as I could. Tried to do everything as recommended. 
I am setting up on Apache with CGI.

When I try to access the wiki I get a blank page. the same when I try 
the action test.

My httpd error log states the following:
No such file or directory: exec of 
'usr/share/moin/moinwiki/cgi-bin/moin.cgi' failed
Premature end of script headers: moin.cgi

I have edited the httpd.conf as directed to include the following:
Alias /moinwiki/ "/usr/share/moin/htdocs/"
<Directory "/usr/share/moin/htdocs/">
   Order deny,allow
   Allow from all
ScriptAlias /moinwiki "/usr/share/moin/moinwiki/cgi-bin/moin.cgi"
<Directory "/usr/share/moin/moinwiki/cgi-bin">
   Order deny,allow
   Allow from all

I had to tweak moin.cgi because it seems Fedora Core 5 had two versions 
of Python installed. I was getting an error in the httpd error log about 
"/usr/bin/env: pyhton\r: No such file or directory" So I used:
sys.path.insert(0, '/usr/share/moin/moinwiki')

Would very much appreciate any help.
