    Are you on MAC or PC? I think you use "python hello.py" in MAC Terminal. On the PC command line, just type "hello.py". To run from IDLE, either hit F5 or select "Run Module" from the Run Menu.

    It sounds as if python is not installed in your computer. Download it from the official sire python.org. Then try and run IDLE.(Download is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X)
