What's wrong with:

$ cp Zope-2.3.0-linux2-x86.tgz /usr/local/; cd /usr/local
$ tar xzvf Zope-2.3.0-linux2-x86.tgz; mv Zope-2.3.0-linux2-x86 Zope-2.3.0
$ rm Zope-2.3.0-linux2-x86.tgz
$ chown -R root.root Zope-2.3.0
$ cd Zope-2.3.0
$ ./install
$ chgrp -R nobody var; chmod -R g+rw var; chmod g+s var
$ python zpasswd.py access
$ ./start &
