AS AN ALTERNATIVE, you can just copy the entire "django" directory to Python's
site-packages directory, which is located wherever your Python installation
lives. Some places you might check are:
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages (Unix, Python 2.7)
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages (Unix, Python 2.6)

C:\\PYTHON\site-packages (Windows)
