Then I installed Django in the following steps.
1. Downloaded the last version (1.2.4) of Django from the Django web site: http://www.djangoproject.com/
2. Unzipped the .tar file with http://www.7-zip.org/
3. Copied the unpacked folder django with subfolders to C:\python25\Lib\site-packages\
4. This folder must be in your Python windows path variable for the Django package to function. If it is not there already, you have to update your Windows Python environment variables.
Note the following if you read from the book - http://withdjango.com/.
For Windows users, who do not have symlinking functionality available, you can copy django-admin.py to a location on your existing path or edit the PATH settings (under Settings - Control Panel - System - Advanced - Environment...) to point to its installed location.
I used the second option and included django-admin.py in my PATH environment variable. When that is done, go to the DOS prompt (Not the Python prompt) and issue:
If everything is OK so long, you should get a description of avaliable help commands. Now you can read more about django-admin.py and manage.py here:
Then continue reading the book or go to
Django dev Documentation: http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/contents/
and read. Switching between the (a) book and that documentation should be the best.
