import direct.directbase.DirectStart issues!!!

I have installed panda and everything that panda came with (the tutorials and such) all seem to work ok, so I am trying to learn this and a tutor informed me to include:

import direct.directbase.DirectStart
run()

This is creating and error and wont run my code
the error is:

Directstart: Starting the game.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:\Documents and Settings\Cleveland Job Corp\Firstpandatest.py”.
line 7, in ?
import direct.directbase.DirectStart

Can anyone help me with this?

I don’t understand why this doesn’t work. Is this just a pice of your code or is this all in your file?
If you have some other statements please post all of your sourcecode

are you running ppython or python? try running it in interactive (add a -i after ppython). It seems like the traceback is missing the error message, so that’s about all I can think of with that much info
