Virtually all general-purpose server or client Linux distros
already have Python installed.

If you've managed to find one that doesn't, then you've got two
choices:

  1) Install it using the package manager for the distro in
     question.

  2) Build/Install it from source.

For somebody who knows so little about Linux, I'd strongly
recommend option 1.  We can't give you step-by-step
instructions unless you tell us what distro you're running.
