I've never worked with Interbase and I don't have it here so I can't test 
it. I've just looked at the windows package and it seems self contained, 
i.e. it looks like it contains the driver as well. Like too many products, 
it contains *no* documentation :-(

Your connection string is usually the database NAME, i.e. the name with 
which you refer to the DB within Interbase. I guess this is zope1 on your 

so your connection string might simply be:
zope1 sysdba zopeman

This should be similar to connecting to the way you connect to the database 
otherwise: command line or through ODBC, etc.

ie. C:Program File\Borland\InterBase\interbase zope -U sysdba.

You should search for the kinterbase project (presumably on Sourceforge) 
which should detail the Python driver or contact the developers of the 
Zope-DA mw at wobe-team.com

Bonne Chance!
