How to install GDAL with Python on windows?

I have downloaded Fwtools for python2.5 from http://fwtools.maptools.org(windows installer) after installing it, it was giving error as Unable to import osgeo. Then I checked the whole FWtools for osgeo but nothing was there ..

can anyone guide me how can I get "osgeo" and "gdal/ogr" package for the Python (as I don't have any python documentation for osgeo and the command pydoc -g osgeo also doesn't work)

Presently I am using all these packages from inside the Qgis Console..Can't I have the same package for my python bundle..

I've been using GDAL/OGR library with Python 2.5 for quite a while. I downloaded Windows installation binary from http://download.osgeo.org/gdal/win32/1.6/ 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.

https://www.packtpub.com/python-geospatial-development/book I found this book a great resource if you do python GIS development. It guides you through installations of various libraries as well.
