Unpack the CMFCore sdist tarball, e.g.:
$ cd /tmp
$ wget \
$ cd /usr/local
$ sudo tar xzf /tmp/Products.CMFCore-2.2.4.tar.gz
and then add the unpacked directory to the 'products' section of your
instance's 'zope.conf', e.g.:
$ grep "^products" /usr/local/Zopeish/etc/zope.conf
You can repeat the 'products' bit to add other products.

I recommend using 'virtualenv', which gives you a "sandboxed"
environment for installing "non-system" packages.
