I typically just import sys and then do a
sys.path.append(directoryPath). This basically makes whatever modules
in that path available at run time. If you need a beginners reference
book, I recommend "Beginning Python" by Hetland. "Python Programming
for the Absolute Beginner" by Dawson was a lot of fun, but he doesn't
get into the internals of the language like Hetland does. Once you're
a snake charmer too, you can "graduate" to the "Programming Python"
book by Lutz.
