how to install abc with python

I was installing azureus on a amd 64 computer
and I think some thing went wrong when it
was setting up, and rather than figure out how to
uninstall it I thought I would just download
yet ABC.

The question is how to install and run the program
I dont know anything about python. I checked and python
is installed on my computer.

so I tried

$ python

and it did something but I

got an error

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 967, in ?
run([""], abcpath)
File "", line 959, in run
app = ABCApp(0, params, single_instance_checker, abcpath)
File "", line 928, in __init__
wxApp.__init__(self, x)
File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/wx-2.6-gtk2-unicode/wx/", line 7473, in __init__
File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/wx-2.6-gtk2-unicode/wx/", line 7125, in _BootstrapApp
return _core_.PyApp__BootstrapApp(*args, **kwargs)
File "", line 932, in OnInit
self.params, self.abcpath)
File "", line 697, in __init__
if (sys.platform == 'win32'):
NameError: global name 'sys' is not defined

"sys is not defined." that sounds easy enough to fix
and how to run the program ifter its installed?

Its still in beta version so i didn't download it, i instead used wine to run it... just download the win32.exe then wine <filename> then wine abc.exe and install!
