I tried your suggestion.
I created a file inside mymodules folder called __init__.py.
when i run myprogram.py i still get the same error.
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/home/laszlo/myprogram/myprogram.py", line 7, in ?
     import mymodule1
ImportError: No module named mymodule1#

What am I doing wrong?
