	Ok, I took the dco2.pyd and put it into lib\Python\Products and there 
was a __init__.py but not version.py or DCOracle2.py.
	Next the DCOracle2 was unzipped to the Products folder and, following 
instructions, the folder was renamed "ZOracleDA".
	Then I rebooted and clicked on the install.py.  A command window opened 
briefly and then closed with no message.
	Trying to start the Zope instance, however, caused the same error as 
before:   Import Error: no module named dco2	which occurred twice in the 
traceback.  Trying to start Zope reported that there was no connection 
with port 8080.  When this happened before I deleted the DCOracle2 files 
and things booted OK.
	What am I not doing/forgetting?
