Newbie question here-

I'm planning to run a whole bunch of separate Plone instances on the 
same server.

I'm trying to write a script to create new Plone instances on the fly- 
but I'm stuck on how to get zope to automatically initialize a plone 
site the first time it's run, rather than having to add plone through 
the ZMI manually.

Is this something I can append to the mkzopeinstance.py script, provided 
I get the Plone files copied to the Products directory of the new zope 
instance before the script completes?

Or do I have to launch the zope instance, and add the Plone site 
(defining it's name, etc) through the zope API. If so, I'm having 
trouble figuring out how to script this- can anyone lead me to a basic 
script with calls that manipulates the ZMI?
