I think we'll need better error messages. Try adding this line right
before the 'import os' line:
'cgitb' is the 'CGI Traceback' module: if anything bad happens during the
script, cgitb will intercept the error and try displaying a good error
report to your browser.
You can find out more about cgitb here:
Good luck to you!
