[SciPy-user] Can't run IPython from SuperPack. ??

I installed the full SuperPack from SciPy.  Things seem to work well for 
pylab and scipy, but I want to use pylab/matplotlib in interactive 
mode.  The current wisdom is to do that in IPython.  The superpack 
intalled IPython down in /Lib/Framework/python...blah, blah/site-packages/.

But typing ipython, IPython or any variations in the Terminal does 
nothing.  I don't see ipython in /bin  /usr/local/bin or other places I 
find python or pythonw executables.

Any idea what I have to do to get up and running with IPython?

MacOS X 10.4 on PPC laptop, python2.4, latest SciPy, Pylab and Matplotlib.

Thanks for any help.

By the way.   My congratulations and endorsement to all who put together 
the SuperPack and its contents.  That's the way to do it for us python 
users.  Almost one-stop shopping.  Very nicely done.
