Aditya, Which 6.00 course are you taking? Fall2012 6.00X is using the Enthought Python distribution at http://www.enthought.com/products/epd_free.php (which is based on python 2.7.3) The MIT OCW 6.00SC course says to use http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.5.4

Version 2.x.x are backward compatible with other 2.x.x but 3.x.x is not and some code meant for 2.x.x will not run properly in 3.x.x so I am pretty sure it does not matter as long as it is 2.x.x. Also, when you install python you normally get 2 icons to run it, one is for the command line version and one is for Idle. If you do not get the Idle icon like what happens if you install Portable Python on a USB stick then you can go to the Lib/idelib directory and run the idle.bat file to load it. Hope this helps someone.
You'll probably be fine with the installed version of Python. Idle is hidden pretty well in OSX's default install. Search for it with Spotlight. This is the guts of a little script I wrote to make idle a command on my 10.5.8 machine: /usr/bin/python /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/idlelib/idle.py
