The Boston Python Workshop folks have some detailed step-by-step instructions on getting Python up and running ([1]).

Given that this can be a pain point for new users (primarily on Windows), it may be good to reference these instructions from the official docs. (Alternatively, we could use them as the basis for a "HOWTO" in the official docs and update release.py to adjust the relevant links. That's a lot more work than just adding a link, though)
