if you keep this discussion on the list then more people can help you.

To connection your database with Zope you need a Zope database adapter and a 
Python driver. For MySQL you can use either the ZopeMySQLDA or our 
mxODBCZopeDA. The Zope book contains lots of examples on how to integrate 
your database in Zope. Feel free to ask questions on the list *once* you 
have read the sections on relational databases and Zope.
