Maybe I shouldn't be posting this...
I downloaded py2exe and can't get it to make exe's of my python files. 
There are a list of instructions:

# A very simple setup script to create 2 executables.
# hello.py is a simple "hello, world" type program, which alse allows
# to explore the environment in which the script runs.
# test_wx.py is a simple wxPython program, it will be converted into a
# console-less program.
# If you don't have wxPython installed, you should comment out the
#   windows = ["test_wx.py"]
# line below.
# Run the build process by entering 'setup.py py2exe' or
# 'python setup.py py2exe' in a console prompt.
# If everything works well, you should find a subdirectory named 'dist'
# containing some files, among them hello.exe and test_wx.exe.

from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe

     # The first three parameters are not required, if at least a
     # 'version' is given, then a versioninfo resource is built from
     # them and added to the executables.
     version = "0.5.0",
     description = "py2exe sample script",
     name = "py2exe samples",

     # targets to build
     # windows = ["test_wx.py"],
     console = ["hello.py"],

What does it mean by the 'console prompt'? I tried Command Prompt (Windows 
XP) but I get errors when I type 'setup.py py2exe' or 'python setup.py 
py2exe'. I also don't get anything when I run the setup.py in IDLE (or the 
Python command line). In fact I get an error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\py2exe\samples\simple\setup.py", 
line 22, in ?
     import py2exe
ImportError: No module named py2exe

If you have used or are using py2exe, please tell me what I'm doing wrong!
