On Unix you have to be root to open port 80 and it's better if you can run
Zope as a user other than root in case of security problems.

It's not that good an idea to expose Zope to the outside world anyway, I'd
suggest running Apache on port 80 and re-direct to Zope on localhost:8080

You're probably better to direct Zope queries to one of the Zope mail lists,
