OpenCV Python install question on Ubuntu lucid

I am trying to install opencv on to my system, however, I fear I may have absolutely botched the install. I made the mistake of following more than 1 website with instructions and downloaded unnecessary things or downloaded incorrect things. Also, the default python I have on my system is python 2.6, and I installed python2.7 but it could only be run using the command python2.7. In addition, I am able to import opencv in python2.6 but it doesn't do anything since any method I try to use just gives an error. Is there any way to wipe all this and start from scratch? Is there a defined method of installing opencv python in ubuntu? I realize I have not given much information to go on, but this is because I downloaded so many things with the most obscure names. I can dig up the history install log if anyone wishes to see it.
