[Tutor] upgrading from 2.3 to 2.4.1 on Mandrake Linux 10.1

Which is the best location to install Python in Linux? Should it be under one directory or different (like lib, doc, bin etc.)?

I followed installation instructions in "inst.pdf" from python documents. I can see that Python 2.4.1 has been installed in /user/lib/local by standard installation procedure. When I launch my IDLE or "Python" at shell, Python 2.3 comes up! Why? Do I need to upgrade any other config files? 

Also, I am looking for help in upgrading xwPython package, OpenGL package, and installation of BOA constructor. They go in which directories?

Thank You
