Recently, i took it upon myself to try and learn Python. I went to a site that told me to install several plugins for firefox and other programs, alongside with Python. The site that told me to download these files, says that I have to copy the "beautiful soup" into the python library....but i really don't know where that is or how to do that. I guess my question is: HOW do i go and copy beautiful soup into the python library?

Make sure you have Python installed and its added to your system PATH variable

1 Download beautifulsoup : http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSo...ifulSoup.tar.gz

2 Decompress it using WinRAR or 7-Zip to a folder lets say c:\beautifulsoup

3 Open command prompt, and type following :
cd c:\beautifulsoup
python setup.py install

Right-click on My Computer icon on your desktop and select Properties. It will open System Properties window as shown in the picture :

1. Click on the Advanced tab.
2. Click on Environment Variables button.
3. Select Path from the list of variables by clicking on it.
4. Click on the Edit button.
5. In the Variable value field go to the end of text-value and type a semicolon (;) in the end, followed by the folder path you installed Python in (e.g., C:\Python25).
6. Click OK to close the box. Also close all the dialog boxes by clicking OK of the respective boxes.

I have marked the steps in the picture above as well for you to follow easily.
