I found some information at
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2007-March/432606.html

but I still do not know how to resolve the problem.

Since scipy requires python versions > 2.3 I would
be happy if someone can help me with different python
installations on one machine.

Thanks in advance.
