Don't use easy_install, and install from sources with python setup.py 
install, both numpy and scipy, after having installed the following 

sudo apt-get install gfortran python-dev libatlas-base-dev python-nose

Before doing so, you should remove both the build directories (rm -rf 
build in your source tree) and the previously installed numpy/scipy if 
any (in /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ on Ubuntu 9.10).

You should then be able to test your installations doing something like:

python -c "import numpy; numpy.test(); import scipy; scipy.test()"
