On trying to install Python24 on my  new macbook, running 10.4.8,  
with no python ports installed except apple's standard 2.3 framework,  
I get:

--->  Fetching python24
--->  Attempting to fetch Python-2.4.3.tar.bz2 from http://
--->  Verifying checksum(s) for python24

Error: Target returned: Image error: /Applications/ 
DarwinPorts/MacPython/ already  
exists and does not belong to a registered port.  Unable to activate  
port python24.
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

I noticed a similar thread a year ago & did
port sync
port clean --all python24

as the posts suggested, but still the same problem
Any help most appreciated.
