Hi Abdirizak,

Hmm... I tried answering you about this a week ago; were you able to get
my reply?  Here's a link to my reply:


Have you had success installing NLTK thorugh the Distutils system?  Try
downloading the source package, and then type:

    python setup.py install

at your system's prompt; Distutils should take care of the rest.
Hopefully.  *grin*

Yeah, this doesn't look right to me at all; third-party modules should
live in the Lib/site-packages directory, so something looks a little weird
about the folder structure.

Good luck!
