I am using Python 2.1 on Win98.
I was able to use urllib from my computer.


# This example is slightly modified that in  http://www.gembook.org/python/
# which is written by Mr. Atuso Ishimoto.
import urllib
#
def gethtml(url): 
    try:
        f = urllib.urlopen(url) 
    except:
        print 'Unable to connect ',url 
        return None
    return f.readlines()
def main(targeturl):
  html = gethtml(targeturl)
  for i in range (5):
      print html[i],

if __name__=='__main__':
     main('http://www.python.org')


And I get:
C:\>python downloadURL.py
