It is more difficult than I have anticipated to install all these python packages.  Compilation problems and obscure error messages are everywhere when I try to build and install these packages!  After a few hours of googling, i found that Enthought has a ~500MB distribution of python that has all of these packages. (it is free for students!)

>>> import numpy
>>> numpy.test('1','10')

>>> import scipy
>>> scipy.test('1','10')

>>> import pylab
>>> x = pylab.randn(10000)
>>> pylab.hist(x, 100)
