Creating a Python installer in win32

Hey, all. I'll get to the point: project for class, got most of my needs
figured out, just unsure about one detail: this is a large-scale design
course, so it has to be a complete win32 app. That means a standalone
installer. I can't just say "go fetch Python, then run this .py file".
Anybody know how to set such a thing up?

Py2exe plus any freely available installer (InnoSetup?) does the job.

I recommend to use a Python binary distribution mechanism, such as
installer:

You know exactly what he was asking. Some people just like to make things more difficult than they
have to be. Fortunately, someone already gave him a decent answer.

In the real world, if you were asked "do you have the time?", would you
truly asnwer "Yes" and walk-away?
