You can either append the path to sys.path:
import sys
sys.path.append (PathOfCode)

Or, if you do not want to deal with appending this to sys.path, check your
environment for PYTHONWIN setting and create it if it is not there.  Then
add the path to this setting:
In Win NT:  right click on My Computer and check Environment tab.  If
PYTHONWIN is not there, create it and set path there.  If setting is there,
add path to it.
In WIN ME:  run msconfig, and add setting through Environment tab.
In Win 95/98/98SE:  In autoexec.bat add:
SET PYTHONWIN = Paths to libs
