Hi there. I recently upgraded my machine's OS from 10.2.8 (jaguar) to 
10.3.9 (panther). I removed my previous 2.3.5 python mac install by 
removing Python.framework and MacPython-2.3 from Applications. I also 
removed python pythonw python2.3 and pythonw2.3 from /usr/local/bin. I 
installed  PantherPythonFix.dmg and then installed 
MacPython-OSX-2.4.1-1.dmg. Install went fine - no errors.

However, when I open a terminal I and type python or pythonw at the 
prompt I still get the Apple build of python after restarting and 
opening terminal. Can someone point out what the problem could be. This 
is quite frustrating since I remember the Jaguar install being very 
smooth and effortless.
