Each Python version should have its own IDLE.  The 2.1
version might not have installed it by default, if
you compiled your own.  I think it's in a /Tools
subdirectory, and you may need to use dsutils to
install it -- only did it once on Mandrake Linux, so
I'm not the most expert here.  But I do think you want
to have a separate IDLE for each version of Python you
run.
