The tutorial installs correctly on my box (Zope 2.1.6 on Win32).

I followed it; I like the idea because it shows how to build a site 

Here are a few notes and questions.

1) The product icon is broken in /Control_Panel / Products / ZopeTutorial:

Here is the page source for this icon:

<IMG SRC="/p_/ProductHelp_icon"
    ALT="[Product Help]" BORDER="0">

2) tutorialShowLesson uses Javascript.

You may want to display a message if Javascript is not available. 
Javascript is usually off on my browser and I missed this navigation 
feature until I had a look at the sources.

3) Will you be able to store several tutorials in the ZopeTutorial product? 
Or do you plan to store one tutorial only in this folder?

4) I cannot add a ProductHelp in the ZopeTutorial folder (or in any other 
Product folder). I suppose I'm missing some part of the new help system. 
Here is the traceback:

Zope Error
