First, make sure you have a subdirectory "Extensions" in your Zope
Here's the directory listing for mine. Make sure that "Extensions" is

Extensions   access  lib    utilities   wo_pcgi.py   zpasswd.py
LICENSE.txt  doc     pcgi   var         wo_pcgi.pyc  zpasswd.pyc
README.txt   import  start  w_pcgi.py   z2.py
ZServer      inst    stop   w_pcgi.pyc  z2.pyc        

Using a text editor, create a new file inside "Extensions" called
Put the code of the external method into D_date.py. Save it.

If you're on a unix system, make sure that you add the folder and add
the file as the appropriate user. This is often "nobody" or "zope".

you want, so long as it is a valid zope id.)

Fill in "D_date" (without the quotes) as both the python module name,
and the function name.
