You will have fewer problems when you install from source:

- download python 2.4.3 and untar it
- ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/python243
- download and untar Zope 2.9.6 (why 2.9.5?)
- ./configure --with-python=/usr/local/python243/bin/python --prefix=/home/Zope
- make and make install
- execute the mkzopeinstance.py and use the directory /home/Zope

replace /home/Zope with your preferred directory.

I always do it this way on our RHEL machines.
