I have Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.6 and I downloaded and unpacked Python  
3.0 into a folder (/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework) and ran  

cd /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Python-3.0
python install

and got the message reporting a syntax error:

Macintosh:~ vzupka$ /bin/csh
[Macintosh:~] vzupka% cd /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Python-3.0
[Macintosh:Frameworks/Python.framework/Python-3.0] vzupka% python install
   File "", line 232
     except (CCompilerError, DistutilsError) as why:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
[Macintosh:Frameworks/Python.framework/Python-3.0] vzupka%

What is the reason and how do I install?
