Question Why can't Bit Torrent find wxPython?

Per instructions I found on the net, I downloaded and installed the latest versions of Python (python2.3-2.3.2-1pydotorg.i386.rpm) and wxPython (wxPythonGTK-py2.3- Also, I untarred the latest Bit Torrent source (BitTorrent-3.3.tar.gz) into the /usr/local/bin/BitTorrent-3.3 directory. I additionally added the following line to my /etc/mailcap file
application/x-bittorrent; /usr/local/bin/BitTorrent-3.3/ --responsefile %s; test=test -n "$DISPLAY" (I read somewhere that the --responsefile had to be added)
I also added the following to Mozilla:

MIME Type: application/x-bittorrent
Extension: torrent
Handled by: (left this blank - nothing said what to put in here)
Checked "Ask me before opening downloaded files of this type"

When I click on a link, I just tell it to save the torrent to the HD, which clearly doesn't start the download. I then tried to go into the download directoy and type:
/usr/local/bin/BitTorrent-3.3/ (name of file)

and I get this error
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/BitTorrent-3.3/", line 13, in ?
from wxPython.wx import *
ImportError: No module named wxPython.wx

No clue what's going on here .... could really use some help.
Did I mention that I'm kinda new to Linux?

If you can live without the ability to launch a download directly from your browser, you can use the non-gui downloader from the command line like this:

/usr/local/bin/BitTorrent-3.3/ <torrent file>
