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

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.

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
Hope this helps,
