Your version of Python is too old.  The '+=' syntax wasn't added until
Python 2.0 (or perhaps the "contractual obligation" 1.6 release) in
October of 2000.  You probably have version 1.5.2 and will need to
upgrade to use Biopython.  The most recent version of Python is
version 2.3, and is available from python.org.
