Hey Ronald - I recon that way madness lies!
I sent the last post and then realised I could run both a new and old  
so I downloaded and have begun - wow - talk about speed!

btw it's quite hard to work out where exactly to get the .dmg
from - sometimes MacPython is called python (under a mac heading) etc
(went around the loop a couple of times and eventually downloaded
from http://www.python.org/download/
which instantiates as
> Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Feb 22 2008, 07:57:53)
> [GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5363)] on darwin
> Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
> Executable: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/ 
> Resources/Python.app/Contents/MacOS/Python

Is that the right one?

Anyway PIL compiles and loads, so,sorry to bother you about this -
Sometimes it's better to bite the bullet!
