what module?  Copy & paste the error message into your query, and you're 
likely to get useful response.  Also copy & paste the command you're 
issuing to cause this error message.

Then your download manager is complaining about a missing module?

A new problem?  Be specific.

Wild guess - maybe it's complaining about a missing SDL module.  PyGame 
is dependent on SDL, as far as I can tell.

Also, see    If you're on Windows, 
PyGame has different versions for different versions of Python.  This 
page recommends Python 2.5.4.  And there isn't a version for Python 3.0
