[Spambayes] Install problem: conflict between Python versions using Mandrake 9.1

I'm running Mandrake 9.2 and am a new Linux user.  I ran across this
thread when I was researching a problem installing spambayes after I had
setup Python 2.3.3. 

[root at linux spambayes-1.0a7]# python setup.py install
running install
error: invalid Python installation: unable to open
/usr/lib/python2.3/config/Makefile (No such file or directory)

Would you be able to help me resolve this issue?  I have Spambayes
running on Outlook in Windows, and am very impressed.  I want to try to
move most all of my desktop productivity stuff over to Linux though and
want to make sure my favorite spam filter will work.
