Python should be available thru your package manager.  That would be the best way to get it.   It's normally free though you might be able to pay for support somewhere.

Open your terminal and type the following commands line by line:

sudo apt-get install build-essential gcc
cd Downloads
http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.2/Python-2.7.2.tgz
tar -xvzf Python-2.7.2.tgz
cd Python-2.7.2
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/python2.7
make
make test
sudo make install
sudo ln -s /usr/local/python2.7/bin/python /usr/bin/python2.7

Then you can use it by terminal or you can make a launcher from your desktop

You don't need to compile it in Ubuntu, a pre-compiled version is available thru the package manager.  That will also enable getting any updates for it.  Are you using the Gnome GUI or just the command line?

On your desktop, click on System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager.  Enter your password (you do need to have an admin account) and Synaptic will open.  You can click on Search and enter 'python' and it will bring up all the packages that have the word 'python' associated with them.  The main package is just called 'python'.  after you click on that, it will check for dependencies and ask you to mark them for install.  You can add any other packages you want and click on Apply in the toolbar to install what you have selected.
