Following the wrong installation instructions?

The ones you _should_ be following state:

1. Download the latest release from our download page.
2. Untar the downloaded file (e.g. tar xzvf Django-NNN.tar.gz, where
NNN is the version number of the latest release). If you're using
Windows, you can download the command-line tool bsdtar to do this, or
you can use a GUI-based tool such as 7-zip.
3. Change into the directory created in step 2 (e.g. cd Django-NNN).
4. If you're using Linux, Mac OS X or some other flavor of Unix, enter
the command sudo python install at the shell prompt. If
you're using Windows, start up a command shell with administrator
privileges and run the command install.


Unpacking a module somewhere _other_ than site-packages and running is a fairly common installation pattern with python.
