This is a frequently asked question, but I don't know of an actual FAQ
to point you to :(

By default zope puts all your data in var/Data.fs in your zope
installation directory. this location varies depending on how you
installed zope.  It's an object database, the objects in
zope are not files.

see above.

no. it's an object database, not a relational database.
