How do I install Python 3.2.2 on Mint?


I've redownloaded Python 3.2.2 several times, and still can't figure out how to install it. I've tried putting the "./configure" into the "terminal" to run it, but that's a no - go.
I have to admit, I'm COMPLETELY STUMPED !!!
I have no idea, not even remotely about where, or how to start installing this.
I downloaded the "Wing" IDE to use while learning, but it refers to the 2.7.1 version, and for most of my books, I need the 3.? version, which I understand is incompatible with the 2.? versions.
PS
I guess the 2.7.1 version came preinstalled, because it's there, and I want to keep it also. I think one of the books uses that version.

I've bought about $150.00 worth of Python beginners books, and I'd really like to start using them!

I don't currently have Mint installed on a working system, but since the command to install Python3 on Fedora is
Code:
sudo yum install python3
my best guess is
Code:
sudo apt-get install python3

What the above poster said, or if Mint has a graphical package manager look for it there.
If it's not in the distro's repositories, make sure you check the readme files and such to see if there are any special installation instructions etc.
