Hi. I've posted this in more detail before, but the general processs 
i've been using to update Zope lately is:

# Backup <path-to>/Data.fs
# Put the new zope tarball somewhere like...
cd /home/myhome/src/zope/276/<zopesrcname>
gunzip <zopesrcname>.gz
tar -xvf <zopesrcname>.tar
mv <zopesrcname> zope276
cd zope276
#Assuming you want to put your new zope in /var
#Assuming you have a recent python
./configure --prefix=/var/zope276 --with-python="/usr/bin/python2.3"
make install

# Assuming your prior zope version is still running and that it
# is installed as a service.
service zopectl stop

change references in /var/zope-instance/bin/zopectl
change references in /var/zope-instance/bin/runzope

service zopectl start

# This way I can leave prior versions of zope on the system in 
# case I need to revert. For instance, I had lots of legacy 
# and Plone problems with 2.8 so went back to 2.76 by just
# changing references in zopectl

I hope that helps.
