Hi,
This is my first post to this forum, so I apologize if there's a better place for this type of question.

I'm looking to get started with python development, so I downloaded Python 3.2.2 and PyDev IDE for Eclipse. When I go to configure my interpreter for a new python project, Windows gives me the following error:

"python.exe has stopped working"

and then Eclipse shows

"Error getting info on interpreter
"See error log for details.
No output was in the standard output when trying to create the interpreter info.
The error output contains:>>Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: unable to load the file system codec
File "C:\csvn\Python25\\lib\encodings\__init__.py", line 120
raise CodecRegistryError,\
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.
<<"

Does anybody have any idea what this means or what I'm doing wrong? I've tried re-installing Python, but still can't get it to work.
And again, if I'm in the wrong place, please direct me to the proper location for this post.
