What version of linux are you using? Python 2.4 is insanely old, and you
should have some type of package manager. There is very little reason to be
manually installing from rpm and zip file.

That being said, this question has *very* little to do with Python and
almost everything to do with linux, and even though many of us are familiar
with it, you'll probably have more success asking your local Linux Users
Group (LUG): http://www.linux.org/groups/
