In ~/.xemacs/init.el:

(setq ipython-command "d:/Program Files/Python25/Scripts/ipython.bat")
(require `ipython)

In ~/.xemacs/custom.el, i.e. set with customize:

(py-python-command-args '("-pylab" "-colors" "LightBG"))

Then I start it with M-x py-shell, or its binding C-c ! in a python
file's buffer.

python-mode 4.79
ipython 1851 (0.7.3 I think)
XEmacs 21.5.17
Windows XP SP2
Python 2.5.1
