Here is a python tutorial (http://docs.python.org/tut/tut.html) and the python library reference (http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/lib.html), both of which are available from the site listed above. Have fun with python. It's a nice language, and very useful on the unix/linux platform.

The www.python.org tutorials are excellent - I was making some serious Python programs within a week!

I highly recommend www.wxpython.org too

I like to create a link for the python HTML docs in Firefox.
Make sure you have the python-docs package installed:

yum install python-docs

Then type in /usr/share/doc into Firefox and browse to the index.html file for the python-docs. Drag the icon for this file in the URL entry box to your bookmarks toolbar.

I also highly recommend IPython for interactive sessions:
