if the script you're running is in the current directory, it'll just
already do what you seem to be asking.
print "sys.path is", sys.path
sys.path is ['/home/davea/temppython', '/usr/lib/python2.7',
'/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-old', '/usr/l .....
The text you quoted is trying to say that there are 3 different ways you
can modify the search path. The script name's location, the $PYTHONPATH
environment variable, and the sys.path Python variable.
