Hi Peter,

I tried it with Suse 7.3 some time ago and found it only workable by 

1) uncommenting all <Ifmodule python>  </if..>

#<IfDefine Python>
LoadModule python_module      /usr/lib/apache/mod_python.so
#<IfDefine Python>
AddModule mod_python.c

so the module is loaded for sure, as I couldnt get it to work with the Suse supplied 
starting parameters

2) Then I put this in there

#<IfModule mod_python.c>
<Directory "/usr/local/httpd/htdocs/test">
AddHandler python-program .py
PythonHandler mptest
PythonDebug On

as you did it

and  I also had to put in a  link 

maybe you hv to replace the 2.1 to 2.2

reload apache and any file you call in the test directory will execute the mptest program

This is what the mod_python should do. That is as far as I got. I think next step is to 
expand the mptest program so you can call subroutines in it which presumaly do more 
usefull stuff than "Hello World!" !!
