Subclassing types and __init__ problems

I have subclassed int and i am having some problems.
Python 2.2.2 (#37, Oct 14 2002, 17:02:34) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> class myclass(int):
... def __init__(self, param):
... print param
>>> i = myclass(1)
>>> i = myclass([1,2,3])
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: int() argument must be a string or a number
I imagine this is an issue with the types/class unification and stuff.
My questions are:
is the previous code supposed to call int.__init__?
how can i make a class so that isinstance(myclass, int) is 1, but im not
forced to call int.__init__?
Thanks in advance,
