I do not have easy access to a Linux machine, and I cannot duplicate it on 
FreeBSD.  When I try the command given above (as myself, without root 
privileges), the installation completes and installs biopython in my home 
directory.  I also get a message that says I've installed biopython in a 
place Python doesn't know about.

springfield:~/remotecvs/biopython>python setup.py install --home=~
[build messages ...]
warning: install_biopython: modules installed to 
'/home/jchang/lib/python/', which is not in Python's module search path 
(sys.path) -- you'll have to change the search path yourself

Are you using a shell that expands ~ correctly?
