The standard 'python setup.py install' procedure for django does not set the file permissions correctly on the template files that it installs under the /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django directory.
This means that when you try to go through the tutorial, when you try to view the /admin/ page for the first time, you get a TemplateDoesNotExist exception.
I had to do:
chmod -R og+rX /usr/local/lib/python2.6/site-packages/django/
to get my django installation working.
