This tries to start zope as the user root, not as that different user.
I do think you want to start it as that other user.  The following
article may help you:

http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/372

Basically, login as that user and add a crontab entry with 'crontab
-e' that contains something like this:

@reboot /home/someuser/zopeinstance/bin/zopectl start

Then test it of course. :)
