It sounds like you need to run it from a command window.  Running it the
way you are isn't meant to leave a window up after the script is
finished. Do Start->Run->cmd  on XP to get a command window.  python
should already be in your path, so typing "python" at the propmt should
result in it running the interpreter.  If that works, exit the
interpreter and type "python scriptname" That should run your script,
and you will see the results in the command window because it won't
close after the script is done.
