> First make sure your path is set. Here's what I have(on Win98): SET

> Create a folder in the Python directory, such as "mypython".
> Create the file, such as "hello.py"
> Save it in the "mypython" directory.

In which case you should also add to your AUTOEXEC:

Then you don't need to do this:
> Go to the command line, IDLE or PythonWin and at the prompt, type...
> import os
> os.chdir('C:\PYTHON20\MYPYTHON')    #make sure to include the single
> quotes

Since Python now knows where to look for your modules when you do:

> import hello
