[Mac OSX] Import curses error, [MacPython] simple question

Hello All,
	Just taken the leap into learning python and  I've run into a
problem regarding curses. I "installed" the pre-compiled version off Apple
website.
	When I typed "import curses" at the intepreter line, it gave me an
import error regarding the fact that it could not find _curses. Looking
through the curses directory, I can't find its _curses either. However, I
have access to Debian Linux at Uni and perusal of their Python 2.2
installation reveals a similar story.
	So the question is, do I have to compile Python 2.2 for MacOSX
from source (are there any things I should watch out for if I need to do
this) or is there way of installing _curses without having to
compile Python 2.2?

	My second regards MAcPython for the MacOS9, is there any way of
implementing curses on this setup?

Thanks in advance,

Kenny
