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

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

  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.

                                  at               something about a TOAD!
