You need to make sure you have added mod_python.publisher to your 
httpd.conf or .htaccess like the tutorial page says, and if you have 
already, try restarting apache.  If it still gives the error, then 
remove the old myscript stuff from your httpd.conf or .htaccess and 
restart apache again. (really you only need to restart if you change 
httpd.conf, not .htaccess)

additional resources:
