You'll want to look into virtualenv: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/virtualenv that should sort out your python versions and plone clashing with Zope 3 fears.

I'm a C++ programmer planing to start my own programming business. For the web stuff, I'm thinking about using Plone if a CMS is required and Zope 3 if I don't need a CMS. I have Windows XP Pro on my desktop. I will probably lease or colocate a server at a hosting service running OpenBSD or FreeBSD. Can Plone and Zope 3 co-exist on the same system? Are there problems because of Zope 2 in Plone clashing with Zope 3? I understand Plone contains some Zope 3 components and I wonder if I will end up with multiple copies of the same software. What about the Python versions? Can I install Python 2.5 or 2.6 and have Plone and Zope 3 use it, or will each want their own Python? Finally (for now), to get up to speed on this software I am planning to buy the following books: Learning Python Professional Plone Development Web Component Development with Zope 3 Am I on the right path or should I run away before it's too late? :) Cheers ljejr _________________________________________________________________ Quick access to your favorite MSN content and Windows Live with Internet Explorer 8. http://ie8.msn.com/microsoft/internet-explorer-8/en-us/ie8.aspx?ocid=B037MSN 55C0701A _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3email@example.com http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
