Does python install fairly easily for a non-root user?

I have an ssh login account onto a Linux system that currently
provides Python 2.4.3 and I'd really like to use some of the
improvements in Python 2.5.x.

So, if I download the Python-2.5.2.tgz file is it just the standard:-

    ./configure --prefix=$HOME
    make install
