It is almost certain that you are using MS Windows,
and that Python is not in you "system path".
If so, here's what to do:

Add the top-level Python directory to your Windows
"PATH".  On Windows NT this is done with Control
Panel/System/Environment.  On Windows 2000 and Windows
XP it is done with Control
Panel/System/Advanced/Environment Variables.  Edit the
PATH environment variable in the System settings to
add C:\Python22 or C:\Program Files\Python22 (or
wherever you put Python)
