In your Start menu you should find OSGeo4W and under that an icon that
launches an OSGeo4W command shell with the environment set such you can now
access GDAL from python. Click it and it will open a shell window, at the
prompt launch python and in the interpreter you can do:

from osgeo import gdal

You can also execute python scripts from the shell window. If you want to
do this from an ordinary DOS prompt window, you'll need to modify your
system environment similarly to how OSGeo4W does it. Look at their .bat
files to see how to set your PATH and PYTHONPATH and whatever else you
might need.
