Can't run python from CMD window in Windows XP

P: 2
I installed Python 2.6.6 on a Windows XP machine without any trouble. I have been coding and running the code in Pydev for Eclipse without any issues, however when I attempted to install a module, I received a strange error.

"'python' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

The same thing happens if I simple try to run python in the "live" mode. However, if I type "python" into the Run dialog box, it launches a "live" python command window working perfectly.

I am at a complete loss as to how this could happen. Any help is much appreciated!
