Don't despair Chris, I have been able to run IDLE and 2.0 with no problems 
on Mandrake 7.2. Perhaps the community would be able to help you more if 
you described your exact problem in greater detail.

I am running 2.0 from rpm and IDLE 0.7.1 from a tarball accessible here:

I'd be glad to help, I just don't know what your problem is!
