  Answered this question twice already - here is a c&p of my last response
:-

"I posted a response to a question like this a little while ago.  The short
answer is try out py2exe, but also Installer.  I like py2exe more, but it's
your choice.  Here is the link to py2exe
(http://starship.python.net/crew/theller/py2exe/) - there is a link to
Installer at the bottom of the page if you want to check that out.
  If you have any problems, don't hesitate to ask :)"

  There is also one called freeze, I can't remember the author (Fredrik
Lundh?) but last time I heard it was still under development.  The final
result from py2exe (and, I assume, Installer) is a standalone program - no
need for make.
