More reasons to start out simpler.  Have your partner install one of the 
remote access tools (GoToMyPC, LogMeIn, VNC, etc) and do the work 
yourself.  And then install the changes yourself.  Again, the practice 
on both systems will probably benefit you more at this stage than 
advanced technologies.  Familiarizing yourself with the actions 
automated installation is required to perform will help you understand 
the tools better, and provides clues debugging the results when it 
doesn't quite work right. Don't make it any harder than it needs to be. 
Ultimately, a single byte update to a .py file shouldn't be any more 
involved than replacing the old file with the new revised file.

I'd use the links below -- there doesn't yet seem to be a 2.7 compatible 
released version of scipy yet, so this lists the most current compatible 
set of installable binaries.

As others have mentioned, don't use idle as you're doing.  Give 
pythonwin (included with the activestate distribution) a try.  Or try 
one of the free versions of Komodo or Wing.
