can you explain this import error?

PythonWin 2.2.2 (#37, Oct 14 2002, 17:02:34) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32.
 >>> import curses
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
   File "C:\Python22\lib\curses\", line 15, in ?
     from _curses import *
ImportError: No module named _curses

I am using Python with PythonWin (also tested all 2.2.* versions and 
Active Python on different machines with Win2K)
I thought curses is included in the python distributions. What is missing?

I only need some simple, but OS-independend functions like this
c = readkey()
Do you know any other module I can use?
