This dtml-with should be in a DTML Method, not in your
constructor.  As I recall you are trying to construct the class2
from inside the class1 constructor.  There may be a way to get
that to work, I don't know. But if you use a DTML Method like

----------- add_myclass -----------------------
This method contains a form to gather all of your required
property values.
It should POST to add_myclassProcessor.


----------- add_myclassProcessor ------------------
<dtml-call expr="REQUEST.set('id', 'MyClass1ID')">

<dtml-with "manage_addProduct['MyCoolProduct']">
  <dtml-call expr="Class1_add(_.None, _, NoRedir=1)">
</dtml-with MyCoolProduct>

<dtml-with "_.getitem(MyClass1ID)">
<dtml-call expr="REQUEST.set('id', 'MyClass2ID')">

<dtml-with "manage_addProduct['MyCoolProduct']">
  <dtml-call expr="Class2_add(_.None, _, NoRedir=1)">
</dtml-with MyCoolProduct>

</dtml-with MyClass1ID >


I guarantee that you will end up with a folder MyClass1ID that
contains MyClass2ID.

This may not be the most spectacular Zope code. There are alot of
things that Zope can do that I don't know yet. But this works and
it's readable when indented properly.

Maybe, someone else can telly you a REALLY COOL way to get it
done from inside the Class1 constructor. But if you want it to
work now. Try this way. <s>
