Sorry for continuous replies. I finally made it. It was quite easy and
I just downloaded the source using wget.
Extracted it. Changed directory to the extracted one.
Then "sudo make install"
That did the job for me. Now typing "python" invokes Python 2.6 while I can
use 2.5.2 by typing "python2.5".
The "--prefix" option was installing the python in "/home/masnun/lib". In
that case I was supposed to create a symlink in "/usr/bin" ?
Anyway, it's done and I'm having fun with Python.
Thanks to all for co-operation.
