[Zope] Zope installation woes

o.k. when running that I saw this:

unix  2      [ ACC ]     STREAM     LISTENING     546729 15600/python

Does this mean it's running?

if your zope instance does not show in the output from:

  netstat -ap | grep LISTEN

(issued as root)

then there's no sense in trying to figure out how to telnet to
localhost 8080 (or whatever port your zope is running on) as there's
nothing listening for the inbound connection. i.e., until your zope
instance is running correctly so shows up in the netstat output, trying
to connect inbound to it will fail and prove nothing. 

[there are a variety of things that can cause an inbound connection to
a service to fail. you need to take the debugging one step at a time,
starting with confirming that there's actually a service running.]
