How to install python on clean RH7.1 install

I'm trying to install Python 2.1-5 onto a newly installed RH7.1. The
RH install was done pretty cleanly, so not a lot of the RPMs have been
installed (I've installed some along the way, as dependencies came
My quesions are these:
1). Is it possible to "upgrade" the python 1.5.2 that is installed
with RH7.1? (I couldn't easily avoid installing it - because it was a
dependency for a lot of packages. That said, I cannot easily
uninstall the RPM for 1.5.2).
2). If not, what way is more or less a fail-safe way of installing
python into a new directory. I have tried the following already:
- installing from the src.rpm file -- the installer stopped short of
creating the RPM file... something about it not finding a lot of files
(that it was to have compiled). It made it through the check, and did
about 5 minutes of compiling, then stopped.
- installing from the rpm file. The dependencies failed were
libcrypto, and libssl -- but I have NO idea where to find these
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
