You didn't provide enough details. Show us:

1. How you've configured mod_python (in httpd.conf or .htaccess)
2. How and where you've set the PYTHONPATH
3. The relevant parts of your importing module
4. The URL you are using
5. The relevant error entries in apache's error log

Don't bother with /etc/profile or .bashrc. Also, include a function in 
your module to display the path, so you can confirm it's being set.
