PyInstaller (http://www.pyinstaller.org/) will generate a
self-contained executable, but it won't hide the bytecode (which can
be decompiled w/ decompyle).
It's generally accepted to be impossible (or at least more trouble
than it's worth) to protect Python source.

See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/261638/how-do-i-protect-python-code
for excellent and more detailed answers.

Cheers,
Chris
