Symbolic link or hard copy, to Zope it shouldn't matter. Python
doesn't really make a difference between not finding a file and
finding it but can't open it due to security permissions.
Check permissions on it.

<zopedir>/Extensions is NOT part of the PYTHONPATH
Don't stick your additional module in Extensions, put them somewhere
else like /home/ds/foobar
then in your one python file in Extensions you can do:
from foobar import Whatever
