If you have this instance of Windows XP updated to service pack 2, then
the windows firewall will be blocking port 8080 by default. I presume
that block applies to same-machine requests.

Go to control-panel, switch to category view (if needed), windows
firewall, exceptions, add port..., "Zope" 8080, TCP.

Then enter http://localhost:8080/manage in your browser. If zope is
running, it should return the ZMI.
