i am having troble in installing tomcat 4.1.12
my desktop has the folder Tomcat 4.1
my OS is win 98
my autoexec.bat is
set JAVA_HOME=C:\jdk1.3.0_02
set CLASSPATH=C:\jdk1.3.0_02\bin;C:\jdk1.3.0_02\lib;C:\jdk1.3.0_02\jre\lib
PATH= C:\orawin95\bin;c:\jdk1.3.0_02\bin

and still when i click on the startup.bat shortcut the Dos window says:
The CATALINA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly
This environment variable is needed to run this program
please could some tell me what should i do

Try installing tomcat to a folder with no spaces. Spaces can do strange things to your environment variables and can also give you problems later when trying to work with remote objects. Try installing it to c:/tomcat . then set your environment variables appropriately.

I agree. Here's the link:
