The answers to your question are "yes, you can distribute Python", and
"no, you don't have to do any legal stuff".  Since you later mention
you're using 1.6, the 1.6 license says you can "reproduce, ... perform
and/or display publicly, prepare derivative works, distribute, and
otherwise use Python 1.6 alone or in any derivative version ...", the
only requirement being that you leave CNRI's copyright notice in
there.  So you're fine.
