hello everyone,
i just made a simple application using pyqt4 and xml file.
i created a installer of my application for windows using py2exe .
now i want to make a similar installer for linux.
i created a setup.py file with the code,

from distutils.core import setup
import ui_student
setup(name='student',
version='1.0',
py_modules=['main_student','base_student','ui_student'],
data_files=[("",["student.xml"])])

and i run with the command
python setup.py install

this command creates files. in fact it copies all the files that are needed to run our appl in /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ directory.
i also tried

python setup.py bdist
python setup.py sdist

they created dist and build dicrectories with same files.
but now i cant find any way to run these things.

now my question is whether my installer has been being created and if it has been being created already how can i run these the installer from the command prompt.
pls help me
thanks to everyone.
