Oddly enough, http://httpd.apache.org/ has some very good information
about configuring Apache. ;)
Add this line in the relevant section of your httpd.conf (I have it in
the IfModule mod_mime.c part):
AddHandler cgi-script .py
And if you put the .py files in a directory that's not the CGI
directory, you'll need to set Options ExecCGI for the dir. I do it with
.htaccess files, but you can also do it in the httpd.conf.
