 Yep, that was it, thanks.

 Well, yep and nope!
 My folder at root lists Control Panel
 QuickStart
 ZAcme
 acl users
 standard error message
 standard html footer
 standard html header
 Opening ZAcme does list News, Products, Research
 That does not agree with the tutorial layout.  Maybe that is 
 not significant 
 so I proceed with Add Image.
 Now, pray tell, where is that .gif file.
 
 Thanks,

 and so it starts...
 
 I'm determined to learn zope for my   next project and can't even get
 past the tutorial.
 
 Using zope v.2.16 on windows.
 
 I get to the part where I create the 1st DTML method (index_html) and
   zope reports an error:
 
 Error Type: Bad Request
 Error Value: the id index_html is invalid - it is already in use.
 
 This is in a virtually empty system.  I suspect that the problem is in
 initializing the tuturial.  I suspect further that the tutorial text and
 graphic figures don't jibe.

Rob, there is already an index_html object in the folder.  You can just edit
this, I suspect.

 The beginning of the tutorial says to create the ZAcme folder under my
 root installation.  I take this to mean at the main manage entry point,
 rather than my literal root directory (as it says further down the
 page).  When I do this, the ZAcme folder shows up in the workspace but
 the illustrations don't show this.  I continue along and end up getting
 the above error.

Yes, it does mean the root directory of your zope folder.  When you create a new
folder, it has two checkboxes. one of them asks whether you want to create a
public interface:  This is index_html.  Then you go into the directory and edit
the index_html as the tutorial suggests.
 
 I also tried manually creating folders in my actual root directory (C:\)
 and in the zope directory (C:\Program Files\ZAcme) and I get the above
 error every time.

None of the files inside zope are in your "Real" directories: they're all in one
file called Data.fs , which, if your zope is at ZAcme, may be found at
ZAcme\Data.fs .

Hope this helps,

When you create the folder there are a couple of checkboxes on
the creation screen.  One says "create public interface".  If
you leave that box checked (the default), it will create
an index_html document in the folder.  I haven't looked at
the tutorial, but presumably you want to uncheck that box when
you create the ZAcme folder.  And yes, you want to be doing
this in the root of your Zope, not the root of your file
system.  You should be able to use the management interface to
delete the index_html document inside your existing ZAcme folder,
and then recreate it according to the tutorial grin.

Sure enough, that does it.  There's an index_html showing on the screen 
shot in the tutorial too, just like my installation.

Thanks
