You need to add the folder containing this module to your PYTHONPATH.

To do this, go to you interpreter and type:
>>> import sys
>>> sys.path.append("C:\Python25\ExampleFolder") 
That path was just an example, insert your own path leading to the desired folder there.

Python imports it's modules from specific folders on your hard-drive.
These folders where Python looks in are contained in a list. sys.path is actually a the list containing those path names. Appending new path names to sys.path makes python look in those locations too when importing modules.

Hope this helped you understand.
