If you don't have root access to the server, how did you get the
Apache mod_python.so module installed in the first place, or are you
using Apache out of your own account?

If you had to install the Python bits of mod_python in your own
account, the only choice, is to set the PYTHONPATH environment
variable in the user environment that Apache runs as to list where you
had to install stuff in your own directory. If Apache is run as root
though, you aren't going to be able to do that and if you could get
that done, you may as well get mod_python installed properly.
