Please check the permissions of the CMFPlone folder that you copied into 

Also, look in the zope.conf file and switch debug-mode on if its not 
already on, then restart and Zope may fail with a helpful error.

One thing that confuses a lot of new people is that if you are NOT in 
debug mode, Zope will continue to run and appear to be OK even if some 
products had a problem on startup.

One other thing - when asking questions like this please always tell 
people what version of Plone, Zope, python you have and on what O/S.

Welcome to Plone. :-)

hope this helps,
