I've been using GDAL/OGR library with Python 2.5 for quite a while. I downloaded Windows installation binary from and installed it. After that, you need to set up the Environment variable (path) under Windows. This way, it should be available to you enywhere outside QGIS. I found this book a great resource if you do python GIS development. It guides you through installations of various libraries as well.
