Algorithms + Data Structures = Programs

You need to understand what kind of data structure a "list" is.  You're
foundering a bit because you don't have a good understanding of your
tools (the list data structure in this case.)  Try going through the
O'Reilly Learning Python book.  Even better would be to take/audit a
college/university class on data structures and algorithms.
