newbie question:

x = [[2,3,4],[5,6,7]]

x[0] == [2,3,4]
x[0][1] == 3

x[0][2] = 8  # will replace 4 with 8

x[0].append( 9) will grow the list to be [2,3,8,9]

There really aren't any "multidimensional lists" in base Python (though the
Numeric extensions have multidimensional arrays), just lists that hold
objects, with one of the holdable object types being lists.

Subject: newbie question:

Um, this is certainly a stupid sounding question, what is the syntax for
putting data into and retrieving data from a multidimensional list?
I checked the docs, perhaps not well enough?
Never trust anything with more limbs than you.
