Visit www.Python.Org there should be some links to tutorials that should
cover the topics of how to install python and how to start using it. If
that does not help come back to us with more information including your
operating system, the website from which you downloaded the installer, the
name of the installer file, and what you did to install python. You also
might try from a terminal or command prompt typing py, which should start
up a python Interactive session. You should see>>> type 2 + 3 hit enter you
should see a new line displaying five. Let us know how it goes and we'll
give you a hand from there.
