Craeg -

The safest thing to do is to build Zope from source using Python 2.2.  I
do not recommend replacing the binary distro's Python with Python 2.2
(using C extensions compiled with earlier versions of Python will at
least generate warnings and may actually cause problems).  

This is obviously going to be a problem Windows. I don't have any
answers for you there.  This is one of the reasons that Zope is 'not
officially supported' under Python 2.2.  There are no Py22/Zope2.6.X
binary distros available and no step-by-step upgrade procedures to
retrofit an existing 2.6 binary installation with Python 2.2.

About the best you can hope for is to persuade someone to compile Zope
on Windows under Python 2.2 for you, and even then it's not clear that
Zope will be guaranteed to run as a service (the Wise installer script
ZC uses to make binary Windows releases does all of this magic and is
not distributed with Zope).  Or wait for 2.7.

- C

PS - this is a good excuse to ditch Windows. ;-)
