I looked at zope.conf there are 3 places where it defines the absolute
path which in my case is inside the SVN tree on the server.
Usually, in zope2 I'd install a brand new Zope on the server and
inside the Products directory make a symbolic link to the SVN checked
out stuff or do a svn checkout right there if there's only one product
to put into the zope.
