the 2.3.3 sources ( are shipped as
Python-2.3.3.tgz and Python-2.3.3.tar.bz2.

the 2.4 sources ( are shipped as
Python-2.4.tgz and Python-2.4.tar.bz2.

use gunzip (or bunzip2) to convert the compressed archives to
a standard tarball.  (if you're on windows, any recent WinZip
or WinZip-clone should be able to do that for you)
