Hi,
I am trying to use python in order to convert a road center line into address points. Basically, I need to use the address ranges and create a point layer dispersed throughout the center line. Any ideas?

That is exactly what geocoding does.  Geocoding creates address points based on your centerline address ranges.  Python could be involved in generating a table of all possible addresses by reading the possible Street Names and house numbers that fit in the ranges.  Then simply run the geocoding tools ESRI provides on that table.  Look on the Geocoding forum for more information on how to configure your geocoding options.
