I have been learning python on my mac, and I just setup a RH6.1 box on my
little LAN to practice Python as a cgi tool etc. Well the cgi thing has me
completely baffled and right now I can't even get a Hello World script to
run at the prompt ie:

$hello.py
bash:unrecognized command

I have tried chmod 0755 hello.py and
chmod a+x hello.py

The first line of the file is
#!/usr/bin/python

which is where I checked and that's where python is. I'm baffled. Right now
if I try to get a cgi the browser just prints the script...ack...what am I
doing wrong?
