So, .... normally you only have to install Zope.... You don't need any
Server (like Medusa, Apache, ZopeHTTPServer) to get it working? Why then is
when installing Zope, the ZopeHTTPServer configured as Server?

... ? How can I make contact with my browser to ZServer? I thought that
when I ask for an HTTP-request, my browser makes contact with the WebServer
(e.g. Medusa, Apache) and then the WebServer makes contact with ZServer.
Thus browser isn't directly connected with ZServer
