Erin:  Nice tutorial.  I recommend one extra step though - right after 
installing fink,  add 'unstable/main' to the 'Trees:' line in 
/sw/etc/fink.conf, and run 'fink selfupdate'.  That way you will get the 
latest versions of all the packages. 

Also, if you want the python 2.5 versions, substitute 'py25' for 'py24'.
