Sorry, have no idea how to get them online, but ...

an idea you have not yet excluded from beeing allowed to share with you 
is to use a temporary system you install Python once on and then copy 
over the files in order to get what you want (and then forget about the 
temporary system). Is it really that hard to do, that it should be worth 
to be provided separately?
Anyone who has Python 2.3.5 installed has the files you need on his 
system, so another idea you have not yet rejected from beeing shared 
with you is, that you ask around to gain access to them.
