Hi Chris,

Correct, this isn't the appropriate mailing list. To request information
about EPD, you should contact info@enthought.com or
epd-support@enthought.com once you are a subsciber.

For your information,

1. EPD install its own python executable and libraries and doesn't interfere
with any existing installed instances of python. The PATH environment
variable allows you to select which one will be launched.

2. EPD comes with a large number of code samples/examples for most of the
packages included, in particular the Enthought Tool Suite. The documentation
is not included though, to save download time. It also comes with a DocLinks
folder with links to each package home page for you to download the
appropriate material.

Best regards,
Jonathan Rocher
