Installing Markdown in Python on Dreamhost

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I was wondering if anyone has had any luck installing Markdown in
Python on Dreamhost. I have downloaded the python version of markdown
from (both the soure
file and and placed them in my root directory.

Following the instructions I then run the command 'python
install', but I get a permission error when the install script tries to
copy to the python directory:

error: /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/ Permission denied

The permissions on my file in my root directory are set to
777, but I don't believe I have access to the /usr/lib/python2.3/
directory - this may be the python directory for the entrie shared
server? Has anyone else come across this problem? I'm trying to install
markdown to use in Django, a python based web framework.
