If you are really new to these technologies and don't want to spend some 
time on it, just serialize on the disk your data structure containing 
your names, password and so on (http://docs.python.org/library/pickle.html).
Depending on your application you may not be that concerned with 
security/reliability issues.

Of course if you want to learn more about it, go on. I personally use 
postgreSQL with the pgdb python module. But this is the only one I ever 
used so I'll let someone else more familiar with all the database types 
respond to you.
