Help Installing Python 2.3.5

I've been running python for years and have never had trouble installing 
until today.  I am trying to install Python 2.3.5 from on my 
windows 2000 box.  I uninstalled everything from the previous Python, 
downloaded and ran the exe and everything appeared to run correctly 
(even got the "Python installed correctly" screen).  Reboot.  When I 
open a dos window and type "python" I am told it doesn't know that that 
is!  The file association with seems to work.  Do I need to map the PATH 
myself?  Everything's in the default directory (C:\Python23).

Thanks for your help,
