>than one way, but I think the most common is to create a file called
>.profile, and put it in your home directory. Put in this line:
I'd use '.bashrc' or '.bash_profile', because 'export' is bash syntax -- '.profile' should be read by any shell, and tcsh (e.g. default in OSX 10.2) doesn't understand that.
BTW this file lives in you home folder (~ = /Users/yourname).
If you don't know how to edit 'invisible' files (file name starting with a dot):
You can see them with 'ls -al' and rename them with 'mv .dotname othername' (then open with TextEdit and rename again afterwards).
If you want to check which python you're using, try 'which python'.
