Which version of the Haskell Platform are you using? I tried running
your memoized Fibonacci function that uses the MemoTrie library on
Windows XP with Service Pack 3, and received the following error
> $>./runhaskell fib2
> Could not find module `Data.Memotrie':
> Use -v to see a list of the files searched for.
My version is as follows:
> $>./ghci -v
> GHCi, version 6.12.3: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/ :? for help
> Glasgow Haskell Compiler, Version 6.12.3, for Haskell 98, stage 2 booted by GHC
> version 6.10.4
> Using binary package database: C:\PROGRA~1\HASKEL~1\201020~1.0\lib\package.conf.

For reference, my code is as follows:

> import Data.Memotrie (memo)
> fib :: Int -> Int
> fib = memo fib'
> fib' :: Int -> Int
> fib' 0 = 0
> fib' 1 = 1
> fib' n = fib' (n - 1) + fib' (n - 2)
> main :: IO ()
> main = do
> putStrLn (show (fib 30))
