I have found the document to install PIL on zope at

Followed instructions, worked fine. Did copy file _imaging.so and the PIL
directory to my zope/lib/python.

When starting zope I get 

2003-03-04T09:51:31 ERROR(200) Zope Could not import Products.ZPhotoSlides
Traceback (innermost last):

ImportError: The _imaging C module is not installed 

It must be something simple, can't put the finger on it...

Thanks in advance,
