Thanks for the reply. This clarifies things a bit.
Reading the wiki:
which has me working from the repository for numpy and
scipy what is the correct way to reflect updates as they occur?
python setup.py clean --all
python setup.py install
#It seems to me in order to get this stuff totally removed

#remove /lib/python2.4/site-packages/numpy in order
#to eliminate any version of previously installed stuff
