[Pythonmac-SIG] Trouble installing Tk binary on OS X 10.3.8. Help.

I need to install the Tk binary to get matplotlib to display plots.

When I ran the package manager I got the error:

Cannot open 
HTTP Error  404: Not found

I went to the MacPython site and got the URL for  

MacOSX 10.3, Apple-installed Python 2.3, PackMan version 0.3

and used Open URL in the package manager to go there.  That worked up to 
that point, but when I tried to install _Tkbinary I get the error:

Problem with dependency: (TclTkAqua): This package cannot be installed 
automatically (no Download-URL field)

Now I'm stuck.  Anyone know what's going on?  Why didn't the package 
manager find the URL in the first place?  And why can't it find the 
TclTkAqua site (I assume that's what it's looking for -- maybe this is 

Any clues?  Thanks.
