I knew it was something like that, thanks :-)

That is onlu if you chose the standard Python module installation. Red
Hat has made something special where modules are stored in a directory
called lib-dyn/ some where. To me it seems like the modules then are
loaded automaticly.
As I mention in my first posting the readme.linux file describes how
to do an red hat install (make redhat) but it doesn't seem to work. An
address is also mentioned for an RPM but the file doesn't exist on the server.
