[Zope-DB] Newbie ZODBC Install question

You need to ensure that zip (etc) archives of Products extract
into the <zoperoot>/lib/python/Products directory

where <zoperoot> is your  'top level Zope directory'

Some developers archive Products with a leading
lib/python/Products path, some don't. It catches out
newbies (like it used to catch out me).
