Hi
I have just installed Python V2.1.3 on OpenVMS and am trying to get Pyro
V3.0 installed but get the following error message:

$ python setup.py install
This script will install Pyro on your system.
Do you want the Pyro scripts (in bin/) installed (y/n)? y
Some Pyro scripts may conflict with system tools already on your system.
Choose your script install directory carefully.
The default location is usually something like C:\Python\Scripts
on Windows and /usr/local/bin on Unixes.
Where do you want them to be installed (empty=default loc.)?
Your scripts are going to be installed into the default location.

Pyro Version =  3.0beta1
running install
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 99, in ?

  File "/python_root/lib/distutils/core.py", line 138, in setup

    raise DistutilsPlatformError, my_msg
distutils.errors.DistutilsPlatformError: invalid Python installation: unable

Any suggestions are welcome.
