<duh>Confused Newbie Here:
	Am using Python on RH 6.0.
Have both python1.5 and python2.0
When I invoke python 1.5, I receive an AttributeError
when calling os.access.

When I invoke python 2.0, os.access is processed correctly.
Sure enough, there is no function named "access" in /usr/lib/python1.5/access.py
That's no suprise, but when I look at   /usr/local/lib/python2.0/os.py
I can't find the subroutine there either. 

As a newbie, I'm confused: Could someone explain this discrepancy to me
and let me know what I am doing incorrectly. </duh>
