2.3.x is not a version. Which versions are you using on each?

    >>> import sys
    >>> sys.version
    '2.3.5 (#2, Sep  4 2005, 22:01:42) \n[GCC 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-13)]'

    >>> import autotest
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
    ImportError: No module named autotest

What is this 'autotest' module? Where are you expecting it to come
