[IronPython] Newbie question...

If this is answered elsewhere (like an FAQ or Archive) point the 
direction and I'll go look it up:). I'm new to Mono/.NET/CLI.

I've installed Mono and IronPython on my iBook - I can fire up the 
interpreter and do simple Python statements. Very cool! My question is 
- since I also have an installed copy of Python 2.3, is there a way to 
access the Standard Python Libraries? On the webpage it mentions that 
IronPython does not come with these, but you can install them yourself. 
How is this done?

I would be interested in seeing if some of my older script will run 
under Mono...

As an aside - I'm very excited about this project. I've wanted to 
tinker with Mono, but didn't really want to learn C# (nothing against 
it...just didn't feel the need to learn a new language). This may allow 
me to experiment and mess around with Mono and the .NET CLI.
