I'll go one step further and give you some help on getting started.  The 
main page for the MacPython distro is 
<http://www.cwi.nl/~jack/macpython.html>.  You'll find links to the 
current version there.

As you'll see on the page, the current final version is 2.0, but you'll 
find a 2.1 release candidate floating around on the FTP site, and the 
2.1 final should be out soon.

As for documentation, <http://python.org/doc/current/mac/mac.html> has 
the (incomplete) documentation for the Mac specific modules.

Finally, the PythonMac-SIG is where us MacPython-ers gather to discuss 
the Mac specific stuff.  More info about the SIG can be found at: 
<http://python.org/sigs/pythonmac-sig/>

Hope this helped,

Jacob
