Any Advice for a fledging developer

Any advice? --
I created/maintain WPClipart, along with writing a viewer/editor
(wpclipper) specifically to easily work with clip art for documents
(paste into AbiWord after viewing and/or editing.)
The clipart is in PNG format, all public domain and there are nearly 20k clips.
The entire collection is freely available for download.
I originally wrote WPClipper using wxWidgets, but have since rewritten
in Python/pyGTK and all libraries are on the XO except for PIL
(Python Imaging Library) -- I specifically did this to facilitate possible
use with the XO.
I would like to make this installable on the XO, as well as possibly
making the "school server" host the images (not the web site) so that
the kids could have all the images at their disposal without
having to scour the web or load 600+ MB of images onto a machine, which
is obviously not possible.
Anyone have any ideas how I could go about this or get some help doing so?
