Short question, lots of answers!
Have a look at the WebProgramming Topic Guide on python.org.


And check out the CgiScripts topic then the Web Frameworks topic.

At a very basic level you just need to get the python
program to spit out html on stdout and set it up as a cgi program.
But in practice there is more to consider and the topic guides 
should give you a feel for things.

I'm actually writing a couple of new topics for my tutorial that 
covers web programming but at the current rate of progress 
they won't be finished till the end of the year!
