And if you just search Google for "Python prime number algorithm"? Perhaps it's cheating, so you'll have to try and fully understand the code first before you run it (be sure to read comments if there are any, eg the activatestate recipes; can have tons of useful extra info & links).
Generally, try to start with a program yourself, and then see where you get stuck. You could then post your stuck algorithm to the list and ask for advice; your current question is a bit too general, and thus harder to answer.
