which one ? (remember that if you have more than one Python installation
on your machine, you'll have more than one site-packages too).

Well... usually, setup.py install takes care of putting the appropriate
things at the appropriate place for your system, so you don't have to
"put the folder in site-packages" by yourself.

Which shell ? The Python shell ? A bash shell ?

move "the folder" from site-packages to somewhere else, cd to "the
folder", then run python setup.py install (with appropriate permissions
of course). And if you have more than one python install on your system,
make sure the one you're using for running setup.py is the right one.
> these setup.py-files often dont work
Python-version confusion issues set aside, I've never had any problem
with a setup.py so far (for 'so far' == since I've started using Python
some height years ago). But I admit I never tried to copy "the folder"
into site-packages *then* run setup.py install from there...
