[SciPy-user] What it the best way to install on a Mac?

I've been mostly lurking here for quite a while and am thinking I  
should get some stuff installed and see what all the excitement is  
about. I can't help but notice that some of the posts are about  
installation problems on various platforms. I also recall (I think)  
that someone was keeping an up-to-date installer for the Mac. If so,  
is this a "proper" Mac installer? Or can I install from Fink or  
another package-manager-type place? I recall some discussion about  
PyLab (?) or the like which included all the SciPy stuff and plotters  
and that sounds like the way to go. I'm mainly hoping for a low- 
hassle installation so that I can get to the good stuff fast.
