you're 100% sure that you have a working compiler and the right Tcl/Tk
build files in the right place, but you don't know how to run an executable
from another directory?

hmm.

here are three ways:

1. pass in the full path to the executable:

    cd tkinter3000-1.0-20031212
    c:\python23\python setup.py install

2. add the python installation directory to the path.  random

when you've updated the environment, open up a new command
window, and do

    cd tkinter3000-1.0-20031212
    python setup.py install

3. if you used a python.org installer, it's likely that you can run
the setup.py file directly:

    cd tkinter3000-1.0-20031212
    setup.py install
