Ooops, Sorry I left .lower() out.

################################################################
def fopen(fname):
    try:
        return open(fname, 'U')
    except IOError, detail:
        return fail("couldn't open " + fname + ": " + str(detail))
################################################################
f1 = fopen('file1.txt')
a = f1.readlines(); f1.close()
d1 = {}
for c in a:
      d1[c.lower()] = None
      #print d1
f2 = fopen('file2.txt')
data = f2.readlines(); f2.close()
for line in data:
      if d1.has_key( line.lower() ):
          print line
