Hello, everyone,

This is my first message here and I am new to plone. I have some
trouble to install the plone and I will try to describe as much
details as I can. And hopefully someone can provide some suggestions.

I am trying to install the whole system on a Windows XP machine.
Instead of using plone installer, I would like to install each
component one by one. I first installed python2.4.4 under C:\python24.
Then I installed Zope2.10.4(binary) under C:\zope\2.10.4 and added an
instance at C:\zope\instance\2.10.4. I started zope by
C:\zope\instance\2.10.4\bin\runzope.bat and checked
localhost:8080/manage and everything ran ok. I then installed PIL
1.1.6 and elementtree 1.2.7 using binary package downloaded from
effbot.org. Then I extracted plone-3.0.2 lib\python and Products
folders into instance home.

When I ran runzope.bat, I got this error message:
C:\Zope\Instance\2.10.4\Products\Marshall\config.py:29: UserWarning: libxml2 not
 available. Unable to register libxml2 based marshallers
  warnings.warn('libxml2 not available. Unable to register libxml2 based ' \

In ZMI control panel - products, CMFPlone is not listed. "Plone Site"
is not listed under the Add menu in ZMI root folder.

I click "error_log" in ZMI root folder page, I got error:
Error Type: TraversalError
Error Value: ('No traversable adapter found', {'ignored_exceptions':
('Unauthorized', 'NotFound', 'Redirect'), 'keep_entries': 20,
'copy_to_zlog': True})

I tried to install libxml2-python-2.6.27.win32-py2.4.exe (downloaded
from http://xmlsoft.org/sources/win32/python/), the error is still

I checked the log file: C:\Zope\Instance\2.10.4\log\event.log, the
most obvious error to me is:
ImportError: No module named PIL

I do not understand. PIL is in the python24\Lib\site-packages. How can
I make zope knows about it?

Thanks for any advice.
