I agree with Nathan; try using IDLE, which is bundled with Python 2.4, so
you should have it already.

This tutorial may help:


It's a graphical tour that shows how to get started with Python.  The
tutorial's a little old (and some of the screenshots are stale!), but most
of it should still be applicable.

Feel free to ask questions.  Good luck!
