Re: newbie tiny-tools question

Desperately following up to my own post, ova'here. :)

Hopefully, by simplifying my post, my questions will be more readily
apparent. The author, jari, appears to be ignoring private e-mail that
might be regarded as support-related.

I was able to install tiny-tools such that the file "tinypath.el" gets
loaded -- which appears to load a large amount tiny-tools config code.

My simple questions:

1. Where in the tiny-tools heirarchy would one place the file

2. After installing python-mode.el in the proper location, must I
modify a load path? If so, what do I do and where?

3. Must I then make a config change to allow the autoloading of this
major mode?

4. And finally, what config changes must I make for the automatic file
associations ".py". I was hoping that there is a file in tiny-tools
for this purpose.

Thank you (anybody)
