[Zope] PluggableAuthService question about roles

I have installed the following:
Zope Version (Zope 2.9.7-final, python 2.4.4, linux2)
Python Version 2.4.4 (#1, Oct 23 2006, 13:58:00)
[GCC 4.1.1 20061011 (Red Hat 4.1.1-30)]
System Platform linux2
Network Services ZServer.HTTPServer.zhttp_server (Port: 8086)
ZServer.HTTPServer.zwebdav_server (Port: 9800)
I'm using Zeo storage with this.
The main problem is my understanding roles with my new set up.
I am moving from a Zope 2.6.1 setup to the setup shown above. I've already
added some Products to my INSTANCE_HOME/Products directory including Plone
which includes the PluggableAuthService folder. I installed a Plone site for
testing and deleted it.
It appears that PAS has taken over my root acl_users folder or is this now a
default in 2.9.
Now I can only add users from the ZODB User Manager under /acl_users/users,
there is nowhere to add a user from an Add buttion as in the older version of
I can add roles from ZODB Role Manager in /acl_users/roles but these roles
don't show up under the Security tab on any page. I can add local roles
under the Security tab and they don't show up in /acl_users/roles.
I have searched and can find little to no documentation on use or difference
in the two authentication methods. Where can I find more information on
roles in 2.9.7 and use in this situation?
Is this normal behavior and if so how can I synchronize roles between the
Security tab and /acl_users/roles or is it not possible?
Am still searching the WEB and archives in the meantime.
