Zope doesn't run with Python 2.4, try downloading the right file ;-)

The nasty bit of the dance is that to use the windows installers for 
MySQLdb you need a plain Python 2.3 install. You then need to install 
the right MySQLdb version, then install Zope, creat an instance home, 
create a lib/python in that instance home and then copy the MySQLdb 
stuff from your plain python install to the lib/python in your zope 
instance home.

Sux, dunnit?
