problem adding custom module in cgi script

Problem:

Apache server serving an HTML file to a Firefox Browser containing a
form and
a CGI python CGI script. HTML works fine, meat of the CGI script works
fine
except that when a home grown and ordinarily functional module that is
to be
imported is added, the interpreter cannot find it.

Running cgi.test() reveals that PYTHONPATH is correctly set. Still
nada.
Adding the sys.* stuff still nada.

Items: Firefox Browser, Apache server, Python 2.5.

=======================================

The CGI script:
#! /usr/bin/python

import cgi
#cgi.test()
import sys

#sys.path.append("/myModulePath")
#sys.path.insert(0, "/myModulePath")
import myModule **************** Problem here ********************
