Python Installation

I need to install Python on a number of laptop computers (at least a
dozen). I am needing to install Python 2.4, pycrypto, win32all,
wxPython, and pyCurl. Can anyone tell me an easy way to install these
onto the laptops? Ideally I would like to have a single executable to
handle everything for me. I have also looked into using NSIS to handle
the installation, but am still unaware how to install the modules that
I need easily. Does anyone have any suggestions?

For what its worth, I am running Windows XP Pro on all of these
machines.

You could try the recently-announced MOVPY, or NSIS/InnoSetup as you
say.

Or simply put the five installers on a disk - if it's only a dozen
machines, it's not going to take long if you don't have to download
each time. They are simple .exe installers, it's not as if you have to
compile and deal with dependancies etc. like on Linux.

I would say install on one machine, then just copy the C:\Python24
directory, but then you'd have to deal with the missing Registry
entries....

Good to see that it was effbot.org that was down, rather that the
effbot himself.
