If I were just getting started as you are, I would probably download the
Python 2.b1 binary and the new Numeric that Paul
just made from the Numeric CVS tree.  It has support for rich comparisons
and inplace operators which will be very useful for you.

Get the Numeric zip at sourceforge.

Good luck,
