I'm not sure why, but it looks like the _socket module was not built 
when you compiled python.  In 2.1.1, is supposed to get this 
right...  if you uncomment the _socket line in Modules/Setup and 
recompile I'm fairly sure things should work for you.

Maybe someone else can give the details as to why this is happening...
