The method I outlined works only for the duration of a single program
run, because the sys.path variable is set up each time you run the
Python interpreter. You need to look at the suggestions you've had for
setting the PYTHONPATH environment variable to effect changes to all
future Python execution.
Essentially this is most usually done in the "My Computer -> Properties"
dialog: click the "environment variables" button and create a new
(all-users or private, depending on your needs) environment variable
called PYTHONPATH containing a semicolon-separated list of directories
the interpreter should add to the path.
