Do this with the "python" you use to run Zope.
This python should know where to place the package
such that all applications using this interpreter should
be able to access it.

However, you may need to have a C compiler on your computer
to build the "C" extensions yourself. They tend to be expensive...
There probably is a "PyXML" binary for Windows and
you should probably install this (rather than trying to
build the extensions yourself).
Find the binary installer and read its instructions...
