What is your definition of "install"? All that the Python installer
does is copy a bunch of files and create registry entries. Indeed,
that's all that ANY installer does.
So, you could just zip up your \Python24 directory from home, export a
few keys from the registry, then unzip the zip and import the registry
files on your machine at work. You would have done exactly what the
installer did, and have a fully functional Python installation.
But what is the point? The Python installer is just an executable. If
you can run a py2exe executable, why can't you run the Python installer
