[PyQt] Need help installing PyQt on Snow Leopard

I tired the standard instructions from Mark Summerfield's book.  Failed - 64 bit vs 32 bit.  I successfully installed a new version of Python (2.6.4), the XCode from the install disk, Qt (Carbon, I think - 32 bit?),  and SIP.  Only PyQt failed.

Then I found Darren Dale's note from Dec 2nd and tried the .dmg that he referenced. (Cocoa? - 64 bit)

That failed too.  I've confirmed that PyQt has not been successfully installed, but at this point, I don't know what kind of a mess I've left my machine in.  Do I have to worry about having two versions of Qt on my machine? NOTE: I've been in the PC world for decades, but have only been in the MAC world since Thursday - so I don't really know my way around yet.

I have two very explicit questions:

1) Can anyone post clear instructions (step by step, including where to put things) on how to get PyQt working for the first time on Snow Leopard (10.6.1 is what I have).

2) Do I have to worry about any messes left behind by the failed install attempts?  Does the new install just clean it up?  If YES, how do I go about finding the things I have to clean up?

Thanks in advance,
Uncle Bruce
