Can't Find Python Install?

I'm probably missing something really obvious, but I downloaded the Python 2.72 release, and now I can't figure out what to do. I've tried googleing it but everything says to just install it. Is that install the setup.py file? If it is, how do I run a python file if I don't have python installed? By the way I'm on Windows 7 if that helps at all.
Thanks for your time,
Ulxlx

http://docs.python.org/tutorial/

basically there are 2 ways to run a python file. Via command line interface or via python's built in IDLE. Python will be installed at c:\python27. At c:\python27\lib you will find python's standard library, a bunch of .py files that give the user python's famed functionality. If you right click any .py/.pyw file there will be an option to 'Edit with IDLE' which will bring up the the code editor. From there pressing f5 will run the code.

Dive into Python has a chapter on installing Python for both the Python.org and ActiveState versions.
