To install "distribute", download the "distribute_setup.py" file from
the above pages, then open a command prompt and run the downloaded
Python script with your Python 3.2 interpreter. The command wil be

that you've downloaded the distribute_setup.py file to
C:\Users\Mark\Downloads. You'll have to adjust this accordingly.
Once this is done, you'll have a new command/script in
C:\Python32\Scripts. So, if you do:

trivially also install "pip", by executing:
from the command prompt.
