This reply is very late, very off-topic and wouldn't have helped you given 
your time constraints anyway but ... my apologies if anyone is offended.

Try Debian, 8000+ packages installable (python 2.1 is default but 1.5 and 2.2 
are available), runs on 11 architectures, will likely (sooner or later) 
support multiple kernels (linux, hurd and a few BSDs).  Anyway, once Debian 
is running type "apt-get install libapache-mod-python" and you're done.

Debian is stable as a rock which means you don't often get upgrades, it's not 
for everyone.  OTOH, running apache 1.3.26 with mod_python 2.7.8 makes me 
quite happy considering the recurring security issues with apache2.
