[Zope] Zope on CD ROM

1) the loading time depends on the size of your ZODB. since reading from=20=
CD ROM is slower than from hard drive it will always be slower. if you=20=
have a large ZODB there isn't much you can do.
2) this is normal and i don't see a way to change it unless you invoke a=20=
real installer and write stuff to the user's hard drive. you cannot make=20=
something into a service in windoze unless you install the whole thing =
twiddle in that dreadful registry thing. the CD ROM when done like in =
howto is supposed to not touch anything on your machine and run =
self-contained, so it doesn't install anything. besides, you can only =
something into a service that runs from the command line on NT/2000/...=20=
but not win9x.
3) check if the start script starts zope with the -D switch or if it=20
explicitly sets the STUPID_LOG_FILE environment variable. you want to =
sure that -D is not set. i'm not sure how you redirect stuff into the =
bucket in windoze, like you can redirect to /dev/null in unices, but =
s probably where the STUPID_LOG_FILE environment variable should point =
