I have figured out what my problem was...and for all of you complete new
people to python I will write what happened in case you come across the same

First and foremost.  Make sure you can get "hello world" example to
mod_python is working before you move on.  I was using a copy and pasted web
site for a newer one
and had problems just jumping in and working.  
This is probably common knowledge, but put your code in your
apache folder.  My biggest problem was that I was in a completely different
folder trying to get this thing to work.  
Next thing, the mod_python-3.1.3.win32-py2.3.exe is perfectly fine, like
most of the setups.  If there is a problem, assume an experienced python
programmer has already noticed it.  Don't go out downloading other dlls or files and start copying them into strange places.
Don't move any of the files except the file over to apache
modules.  If you are having a problem, its not because of something being in
the wrong place,
this was another stupid thing that i did that caused all sorts of problem.
You WILL get _apache not found when trying to import mod_python from the
command line.  Its normal.
Debug with tracebacks from the web...not something like Wing IDE.  Maybe you
can use it, but I don't know how.

Sorry to all of you that read my first post.  Newbie python guy over here.
