I've not used Django before (it was on my list of things to 
investigate), but I managed to install it on a Debian system using 
mod_python 3.1.4 without a problem.

The one thing that was not clear from the django installation doc is 
that you need to run `django-admin.py startproject myproject` to create 
the project directory. If you don't run this command then you will get 
the import errors you describe. This is detailed in the django tutorial.

Also FYI, mod_python will import modules from a symlinked directory just
