Have you imported nltk before that line?  Try this:

Python 2.3.4 (#53, May 25 2004, 21:17:02) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)] on
win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import nltk
>>> from nltk.corpus import gutenberg

I suspect you may be doing this:

Python 2.3.4 (#53, May 25 2004, 21:17:02) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)] on
win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from nltk.corpus import gutenburg
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: cannot import name gutenburg

Note that if the corpus can't be found, you can still do the import (just
not use the corpus).
