That error very specifically means that Tkinter is not completely 
installed, no more no less.  You will not get that error if you 
followed the directions exactly:
	(a) install TclTkAqua
	(b) install the MacPython Addons for Panther
	(c) install the Tkinter package from the PackageManager application 
that came with the MacPython Addons
	(d) running your python script(s) with the correct interpreter,
