Sure, although of course it's quite an advanced task (I
would never suggest a newbie to attempt it!-), see
http://starship.python.net/crew/theller/py2exe/ for example.

Python has a wonderful file of Frequently Asked Question (FAQ),
by the way, and this is definitely one of them.  See e.g.
http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw.py?req=show&file=faq04.028.htp
for your specific question, and
http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw.py?req=all to get the
whole FAQ file to read on your machine.
