On Linux (and other *nix systems), only processes running as "root" can 
bind to ports <= 1024 (these are the so called priviledged ports).

Almost surely, the "Plone" setup for Linux therefore uses port 8080
rather than 80.

*If* you have root rights on your Linux box, then you can
run Zope as root on port 80. You need to change the HTTP port
in Zope's configuration file for this. Furthermore, you need
to set the user Zope should run with after binding to the
port (this is necessary because Zope refuses to run continuously as root --
for security reasons).
