Zope is a breeze, I have never had a problem. I am actually running MySQL on a 
linux box, but am accessing it through the Zope on windows using the standard 
zMySQL DA, which had a few hiccups on installation but was not terrible. I have 
used ODBC as well with success.

I think it's easy enough to install the MySQL that you should work on it. There is a 
nice Windows management interface to MySQL as well, and I use my MsAccess 
and ODBC to load stuff into the MySQL database.
