Thanks for downloading Django. To install it, make sure you have Python 2.3 or greater installed. Then run this command from the command prompt: python setup.py install Note this requires a working Internet connection if you don't already have the Python utility "setuptools" installed. AS AN ALTERNATIVE, you can just copy the entire "django" directory to Python's site-packages directory, which is located wherever your Python installation lives. Some places you might check are: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages (Unix, Python 2.4) /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages (Unix, Python 2.3) C:\\PYTHON\site-packages (Windows) This second solution does not require a working Internet connection; it bypasses "setuptools" entirely.
