Here's the answer. Consider this folder.

Afolder
   abc.py
   hello.py

I now apply py2exe steps to produce an  "executable" for abc. The folder 
now changes to

Afolder
   build
   dist
   abc.py
   hello.py

build are two new folders. dist contains abc.exe.

Somehow when I type abc at the command prompt, this follows a path to 
dist, and finds abc.exe, where it executes properly.
Cute, eh? I have no explanation for it.

I have no idea what build is for, but dist contains a bunch of other 
files that possible apply to doing this with other files in the Afolder. 
hello.py maybe. The details seem to be shrouded. Possible a Google might 
provide a full explanation.
