If you want to make an installer for an application, distutils alone
won't help you much. You could either use py2exe or Gordon McMillan's
installer to create a standalone executable, then use a "normal" free
installer maker to create the installer (for shortcuts and stuff).

I've done that once with the McMillan installer and NSIS.
