Installing "custom" modules under linux as a user:

# pick a place to store the virtual python and modules
mkdir /opt/python
cd /opt/python

# get some tools

# create the virtual python
python --prefix=/opt/python
# there is now a /opt/python/bin/python with the right path etc.

# install setup tools

# example: install a module
/opt/python/bin/easy_install "CherryPy==3.0.3"
