I am seeing the same python error even with a fresh installation of 1.5.7 in its
original directory... Maybe my paths are screwed up, but I'm not sure how to fix
it, and I wish LyX would do its own configuration checking ahead of time instead
of spitting out errors in the middle of doing something. 
I know this is a work in progress, but it would be more user-friendly if a
dialog or something would pop up prompting the user to help locate python or
whatever missing component LyX needs, and then update the paths accordingly for
the future.

Best wishes,
Alex
