tkinter problem

I have the "tkinter" problem and need some assistance to straighten it out.
>From the web page "" I tested as in "step
1" and cannot import "_tkinter." I do not have that file on my computer, but
do have in /usr/local/lib/python2.6/lib-tk. as well as the
directories /usr/lib/tk8.5 and /usr/lib/tcl8.5.
This  python stuff is great, but the documentation frequently
feels like it is just a bit out of my grasp. I realize that all of this is
free but I understand the instructions on the web page to repair only to the
point of confusion. I'm not an expert. How do I modify my python
configuration? Is there a file that needs to be edited? Which file
do I use? Make? or python build and python install?
Thanks. I appreciate your help.
