What database adapter is ZODBCDA using? mxODBC? What you need is a version of
the database adapter that's built for Python 2.1. No problem for mxODBC (please
note that the license changed! You might have to buy a license.), just download
a newer version from the web page. You might have to do tricks if it's a binary
installer. It won't let you install ZOPE, the trick is to install a regular
Python 2.1, install the package with the binary installer, then copy the files
in the proper directories of your ZOPE installation.

On my homepage (see sig) you can find an installer that installs the
mx-Extensions (mxDateTime et al., you will need mxDateTime for almost every
database module) onto ZOPE. And the same thing for MySQLdb/ZMySQLDA.
