That depends on the application and which modules it uses. All of the 
installers (Installer, py2exe, cx_Freeze ...) will find all the modules 
a given script needs. IIRC they all use of one distutils features.

Again, use one of the installers (py2exe seems to be popular). It will 
create a small executable with all the needed modules.
