Bit Torrent and Python 2.4

So i have been trying to install Bit torrent for a while on my fresh mandrake 10.1 system and i cannot get it for the life of me.

I have tried a couple of different clients and same thing occurs, packages and source.
When i try to run the setup file for bit torrent 4 this is the error message that i get. So ifgured that i probably needed some type of development package for python, but i cannot find a python2.4-dev package for mandrake anywhere

[chalewa4bambu@localhost BitTorrent-4.0.1]$ python install
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 17, in ?
    from distutils.core import setup, Extension
ImportError: No module named distutils.core

If anyone has any insight into what i might be able to do to remedy this problem, it would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah you need the python-devel package. I don't know how you Mandrake(Mandriva) users get packages so I'm not much help here.
