I want to install Python 3.2 in addition to the already installed Python 2.7. Can I do that in Mac OS 10.6.7?

I am new to programming and I taking the MIT opencourseware 6.00 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming
, which was taught using Python 2. I am also starting a project at work and am using the book Bioinformatics Programming Using Python
, which uses Python 3. I have Python 2.7 installed. Can I install 3.2 on Mac OS 10.6.7 and have both versions available? I understand 2 and 3 are very similar and that there are workarounds but I learn much better when I can work in an environment that is identical to either the course or the book. Googling gives me answers for which to pick but not how to install both simultaneously. Having IDLE working for both would be a bonus.
