I agree Sascha, I would prefer to much more grounded in the ways of the
command line before attempting this stuff.  I'm trying to get this running
as I was hoping that it wouldn't be too involved and would be able to get
busy creating Plone sites.  I don't have the luxury of time to learn more
about this in general beforehand and so made the decision to learn "on the
job" as it were.  You may see this as foolish, and it probably is, but I
entered into this hoping that I wouldn't have to get my hands too dirty. I
now find myself in uncharted territory, not wanting to turn back.

So do you think I should throw in the towel now?

If you only have one server available and if it is a production server, then you need to think about the ramifications of crashing that server. 'Production server' means different things to different organizations, and if no-one is going to be screaming at you if you kill the server then carry on!

However, if your organization takes a dim view of production server downtime, then I would caution you against proceeding!

You don't need to be a linux expert to install zope, but you do need at least a rudimentary understanding of how linux works and how some basic commands work. I would recommend spending some time reading the intro chapters of some linux documentation (you can find some at http://www.linux.org/docs/, and there is a good doc at: http://www.centos.org/docs/4/html/rhel-rg-en-4/) - it may seem like a waste of time, but it will save you time and aggravation in the future.

If you do not want to spend the time on linux/zope and you just want to 'get working', you could look at some of the zope hosting companies (they already have zope up and running, and they look after maintaining the 'infrastructure', which lets you focus on your application).
