dude, i just had this same problem.  I tried editing the PYTHONPATH
variable in the PythonPath editor (via Pythonwin) but it didn't quite

The simplest solution (if you're using PythonWin as your IDE) is to add
edit the pythonwin path.  Go to the Edit PythonPath from the Tools
pulldown menu and edit the pythonwin registry to include your script

hope that's clear,
