I tried again, this time apt-get'ting zope+python.

I installed Plone "from source" into /var/lib/zope/instance/default/ 
Products/Plone-2.1.2 (the dir the README.Debian file tells me to put  
it), but it still will not show up in the Zope management interface  
even after zopectl restart _and_ a restart of the computer.

any ideas?
