It might be the python path, I used to have problem with code located in 
the Python directory and not in the site-packages directory because the 
python main dir wasn't in the python path.

It could work from the python prompt because the current path would be 
c:\python24 and the module is right there, but if you run it from the 
command line, the current path would be c:\Documents and 
Settings\Aardvark\My Documents\reportlab\ and the module obviously isn't.

Hopefully it's that simple.
