Python 3.3.3 installation issues mac osx 10.8.5 missing folders after installation could be the cause of all my problems?
I am a complete beginner to programming, with absolutely no prior experience.
I got John Zelle's Python Programming: An Introduction to Computer Science, second edition
I didn't think there were any issues installing (I'll get to that in a second)
Only being on chapter 3 so far I haven't run into any material I don't understand or any exercises I couldn't complete. (I do like the book and how it teaches so far).
Getting to chapter 4 it asked me to install graphics.py to teach me how to use a (GUI) The chapter is called Objects and Graphics.
After downloading the file, and I didn't know where to put it. I looked around online and saw it should most likely go into a folder called pkgconfig in the lib folder of Python.
Look at the images and see that its missing in my python 3.3.3 installation. I tried to re-install a few times and no difference. I moved the python 3.3 folder to the frameworks folder where python 2.7 that came installed on my mac was just because I thought thats where it was supposed to be.

This first image shows where everything is in my system folder.

In this image you can see that my lib, bin, extras... all those folders are not in my 3.3 folder, why I dont know. According to what I have already read i should have all these things.

I added this because I wasnt sure if it would be helpful.

This is the final image showing the error I see when i try to import the graphics module with the instructions I have.
I'm guessing the reason is its not where its supposed to be, but I don't know where it should be, and I don't know why the folder I think it's supposed to be in is missing.
I was wondering where python is importing the math module from as well, since that works for me, and I thought I might install graphics.py there, but I couldn't find that either.
Please help me figure all this out, I really want to continue to learn the subject, but I have been spending hours trying to figure simple things out, (which might not be a good sign) and getting very frustrated that I cant continue because I'm stuck on something like this.
Thank you -SK
