[Zope] FileSystem Directory Views

Paul, thanks for the reply...

ReadOnly is fine for me at the moment. Although read-write sounds interesting 
for later. Thanks for the link. 

Since I'm still quite a zope-newbie, I thought I'd try getting 
FileSystemDirectory view working first, thinking that I could read about 
security in more detail as I go through the tutorial. 

I've created three Filesystem Directory View objects. It lists the possible 
directories to add, and there is only the choice of the "site" directory 
underneath the renamed "examplesite". Every time I create one, it is locked. 
I can see the initial welcome page, but if I can't seem to see .html files or 
subdirectories in the "site" directory through zope.

So these filesystemviews seem to be empty except for one DHTML file, and it 
doesn't matter what else I copy into those directories, Zope can't see them? 
Where do tell Zope where my tree of files is located? Or do I create a 
symbolic link inside the ExampleSite? Where is the documentation that 
explains how this works?

I'd like to delete these old FileSystemView objects I was creating while I was 
trying to figure out how this worked. Tried to "cut"
but I get 

The object does not support this operation.
-- OR --
The currently logged-in user does not have the Copy or Move permission 
respective to the object.

Is it possible to delete a FileSystemDirectory view? It has no content in it 
yet, and I see this "lock" symbol on the icon.
