Install the readline module with PackageManager.
If you have a "stock Panther" MacPython 2.3, then you need to download
the "installer for 10.3" here:
When you install, you'll have a PackageManager application at
/Applications/MacPython-2.3 -- open that up and install readline. You
should be good to go after that.
