_socket / SocketServer / Mandrake Linux problem / Python 2.3

Anybody run into trouble and find a solution importing 'socket'?

I've rebuilt, and reinstalled, but cannot find a _socket.py, _socket.pyo, or
_socket.pyc in
the lib directory. ( I suspect that's what socket.py is looking for? )

Thanks for any help.
