My Friends! Thanks for help. But I was able to install till line 13. After that "wget http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/d/distribute/distribute-0.6.27.tar.gz" portion not downloading the packages.

links seems to be broken..

Thanks again! I am able to install my django on top of python now :)

@byomkesh99 add --no-check-certificate to the end of each wget command in the script that should fix the problem. I'm running the scripts now so I don't yet know if this will fully resolve the problem. Be prepared to respond to some yum prompts though, this script isn't 100% automatic but it beats a manual install.
