It installs its own version of Python-2.3. I suspect that this will
blow away your existing install or atleast make your life a little
more interesting than it currently is...

No clue, there is certainly one way to find out though. >:-D
IIRC, Enthon installs Python-2.3.5.
Might be worth taking a backup. Alternatively, if you just want to
install the VTK stuff follow the instructions here:
Specifically see "Instructions for VTK-Python-4.4.zip". This will let
you just install the necessary stuff on top of an existing Python-2.3
