Just to do some expectation management: python 2.6 is pretty ancient and
there's no guarantee that all of the RDKit code will work with it. Python
2.7 is the minimum version that we "officially" support. It's a very good
idea to update.

Based on the info provided so far, there should be a directory called rdkit
in the directory:
/cm/shared/apps/rdkit/rdkit_2017_03_3
That directory should contain a number of sub dirs, other files, and a file
called __init__.py (this is the one that tells Python that it can import
the directory as a package).
What do you see there?

Again, based on the info above, I would expect that you want "make install"
to copy the "rdkit" and "lib" directories (as well as a couple others) to
/cm/shared/apps/rdkit/rdkit_2017_03_3. Once we figure out what actually
happened I can maybe help you figure out how to fix it.

best.
