have you looked to see what is in it? :-)
Are you installing from RPM or something? Of those, only
"import" is normally created in a Zope instance home...
I have generally avoided the zope packages provided by linux
* they are usually way behind the current stable release.
(2.7.6, or 2.8.0 if you are comfortable with a dot-zero release).
Which is fine for playing around, but sooner or later you will have
a need to upgrade to a version not supported by the distribution.
E.g. you may find that you *need* one of the several dozen, if not
hundred, bugfixes and/or new features they haven't picked up yet.
* When you have installation problems, zope people on this list will
have no idea what the hell you're talking about :-)
* Installing zope from source on linux is trivial, and
well-documented (e.g. in the online Zope Book at www.plope.com ).

sounds like you are pretty new to linux/unix too. Try one
of the standard ways of finding stuff on linux, such as:
That should tell you where it is.
If you are installing from RPM, there should be documentation
(maybe in /usr/share/doc ) explaining everything about where
redhat puts stuff, since they apparently do it weird.
If there is not, either complain to redhat, or install from
