First of all, can you please not send html mail, but plain ascii to
the list.  Thank you.

Secondly, this is often a permissions problem which you can get if
you install Python with a restrictive umask.  You are looking for
a file called _socketmodule.so in a file called (I think)
/usr/local/lib/python2.1/lib-dynaload/

The file is probably there, but you need to make the file readable
by everybody.
