Here's a link to a howto on automatically generating ids.
You may want to look at the howto's and zope tips at
http://www.zope.org/Documentation. There are a lot of answers to
questions you may have there.
Now, about getting unexpected authentication boxes on a new ZClass:
In my experience, what you need to do is, within your ZClass's
management area, go to the Define Permissions tab, and assign "Access
Contents Information" to "Access Contents Information", or do something
similar with whatever permissions you are having trouble with. The
default has few permissions, so you need to manage these things.
