How can I install a newer version of python

    I am on MacOS 10.5. It has python 2.5.1 installed.

    How can I install a newer version of python (e.g. 3.1) without
    breaking my current environment (I am not sure what programs/scripts
    are using the python comes with MacOS). I just want to use the newer
    version of python for my own project.

    I found this "http://wiki.python.org/moin/MacPython/Leopard", but i
    have no idea what that is related to my situation.

    Thank you for any tip.

    I think you can just use the normal Mac installer from
    http://www.python.org/download/. As it says on
    http://wiki.python.org/moin/MacPython/Leopard, this doesn't clobber
    the default Apple Python install.

    Cheers,
    Chris
