Installing Python 2.5

Hey Everyone,

I want to run a python script on my server that requires python 2.5. On the instructions for doing so, there’s a quick note to “use Environment Setup” before installing python.

It was this second wiki how-to (the one on Environment Setup) that I wasn’t sure about. Specifically, from what I can tell, it looks like I don’t need to change all the things that wiki talks about, do I, if my only goal is to install Python 2.5? If so, what section of that wiki do I need to heed? I’m only beginning to screw around with all this stuff, so I’m a bit lost.
