And i get the error

looks like a broken installation. try running the script as

python -vv script.py

and see where it looks for the getopt module.

is the ImportError all you get, btw ? it doesn't complain about site.py before
that ?

Thanks for the reply,
I am actually using Cygwin to run a python script.
I have python 2.5 installed. But when i ran the command mentioned by
you... I see that it is looking in the wrong directories... how can i
change these look up directories?

is PYTHONHOME perhaps set to the wrong thing?

if not, you can point it to the root of your Python installation. use "python -h"
for more alternatives.
