These modules are part of default Python installs. For Win we ship the 
needed modules together with Blender, but for other platforms we require 
Python to be installed if you want all bundled scripts to work.

The readme file should come with Blender, as mentioned in the message.
It's in the release/text folder, if you're building Blender yourself.

Link to the cvs version:

 From that info it does seem that you have Python 2.3 installed, not 2.4.

It's easy to check, run this:

import sys
print sys.version
print sys.path

in the standalone Python interpreter or simply type this in a shell:

python -c "import sys; print sys.version; print sys.path"

It should be there, the API_related and Blender.Registry pages:

It relies on modules not found in your install.

So the first thing is to make sure that you have the same Python version
that is used in the Blender executable that you have. If indeed you do
not have 2.3, then check your system vars, there may be one or more
(PYTHON, PYTHONPATH, etc) pointing to a wrong install.

Lastly, to test your Python installation you can open the standalone 
Python interpreter (type python in a shell) and try to import one or 
more of those modules that are reported as missing.
