First, questions related to ZOPE and CMF should probably be directed
at the ZOPE malinglists. See '' for ZOPE related

In ZMI navigate to the folder in which you want to define new roles.
select the 'Security' tab, and scroll to the bottom.

Here you will find an interface for adding and deleting new roles.
