Boa Constructor installation path in Fedora

I'm new to Python (and Linux, for that matter), and trying to configure a laptop as a Python sandbox to learn (both) on.

I've wiped the laptop and put a fresh installation of the Fedora Core 1 on it (downloaded yesterday, about as current as it gets). I've updated the Python that came with it to 2.3.4. I've run into some problems with the wxPython package, but that's another question, another time. (I haven't finished fighting that one alone yet.)

Python ended up in /usr/local/lib/python2.3

The Boa site says, "Un-zip Boa into the Python directory (/usr/lib/python2.2 for example)." Given that the Boa zip file contains a boa-constructor-0.2.3 subdirectory that holds all the files, does that mean my Boa.py file should be at /usr/local/lib/python2.3/boa-constructor-0.2.3/Boa.py, or should it be at /usr/local/lib/python2.3/Boa.py ? I've also seen a reference in the Python Tutor forum that suggests the files should be in the site-packages directory (which would make it /usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/boa-constructor-0.2.3/Boa.py or /usr/local/lib/python2.3/site-packages/Boa.py).

I'm inclined to think I shouldn't keep that boa-constructor-0.2.3 directory in there so that when it's time to update to the new version of Boa (which should come soon, to match the latest version of wxPython), I don't have to re-path everything.

Where should I be putting these little buggers?

Thanks.
