You only need to restart Zope.

Yeah, there should be CMF stuff there.

First start Zope in debug mode. That way it will complain if it fails
to load a product.
Secondly, you probably want to look at Plone instead. CMF is a
framework for writing content management systems. Plone is a system
using CMF. But where CMF is just a framework needs development before
it gets useful, Plone is useful out of the box.
