You need to save them into a folder on your PYTHONPATH
PYTHONPATH is an environment variable that you need to 
set up - via AUTOEXEC.BAT if Win9x or via a 
ControlPanel|System|???? dialog box on NT/2000/XP

So far as I know you can't change that icon on any 
window under Windows - its a Tk bug not Tkinter. If 
anyone does know how I'd love to know...

I think that is used on Unix systems but has no 
effect on Windows because...

SimpleDialog on windows actually calls the standard Windows 
message boxes rather than building them from scratch in Tk. 
Thus Windows correctly applies the required icon. Thus Tk 
apps on Windows not only have the wrong icon, they aren't 
even consistently wrong!

At least thats what I think is going on...
