I just installed iotop rpm, and when i run iotop I receive following:

# iotop
No module named iotop.ui
To run an uninstalled copy of iotop,
launch iotop.py in the top directory
#

I am running red hat Version 5.7 and kernel: 2.6.18-274.3.1.el5
Python is at:
# python -V
Python 2.4.3
#

Does anyone have any ideas as to issue ??

As this page:

says you need to install the epel repository and then try installing iotop from yum.

You probably miss python-ctypes package.
As parparov  suggested, as root

wget  http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
rpm  -ivh   epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
yum  install  iotop
