Hi -
Thanks for the advice.

I see CMFCore in the list but not CMFPlone. So I guess installation didn't
go as well as I thought.

It's really strange though, that there is a directory
/opt/Plone-2.5.3/zeocluster/Products/CMFPlone and it is filled with all
sorts of .py files and subdirectories and such, so it looked like it was
installed Ok...

I do see four Products in ZMI whose names begin with Plone:


So at this point I guess I should conclude that the Plone unified installer
didn't work as advertised? There were no error messages during compilation
and installation.
