    you need to specify what kind of problems you're having. at the moment, all i can offer is this quote from the install notes on the livewire website:

    Python 1.6 and above: How to install the package using Distutils:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    In the directory where you unzipped the LiveWires-2.0.tar.gz file, there
    is a Python script called setup.py. Run this script in Python.

    Under Windows, if Python is associated with .py files (so that the icon
    of the file is a snake), you can just double click on the setup.py file.

    Under Unix, type "python setup.py" to run the script.

    If you get an error message from Python about the distutils package,
    you've forgotten to install it (see "What you will need" above). If you
    get a message from your system saying that it cannot find python, you'll
    need to make sure that the python executable is on your PATH, or provide
    the path to it explicitly.

    If the setup.py script runs successfully, you should find that Distutils
    has installed the package in the right place.

    Note for advanced users: the setup.py is a standard Distutils setup
    script with the addition that, if no command line arguments are
    supplied, the "install" command is assumed. This is a convenience to
    save Windows users from having to get a command prompt to install.

    Whilst the livewires modules are useful and made by some realy nice blokes. you don't need them to make use of pygame rather they use pygame to add more functions for itself.
    If you are still stuck give us more information like your os then we could guide you through step by step.
