setuptools on mac

I am trying to install the newest setuptools on my macbook. 2.3 was
installed by default, and 2.4 is installed and is my default version
now. However, when I try to import setuptools, which is required to
_install_ setuptools, I get this error:

macbkpro1:~/Desktop/setuptools-0.6c7 ironfroggy$ python setup.py install
Traceback (most recent call last):
