Dog slow as compared to what? I would prefer to do the absolute
minimum in terms of tuning. Most of my experience with Zope and
otherwise is with Windows. Can I potentially get by just installing
and running? How would it run that way on a current Solaris server
with appropriate memory compared to say running on a P4 3meg Win2003
machine with appropriate memory.

I am not exactly sure what you are saying -- is this something to be
done at the Zope end or with Solaris knowledge or both?
