At risk of going off topic for this group, but you mentioned that you
use Redhat 7.0
I belive IDLE is an optional part of the RedHat install (well, its on my
machine, I run RH7, and it lives in /usr/bin, not the place my installed
goodies go, so I guess it comes w/ RH7).  If you have the space, select
the "everything" option during your install.
