I am very new to tomcat and trying to get my very first web application up and running. This is the web app from the book Head First Servlet and JSP named Beer-v1

Tomcat version: 5.0.28
Platform: Windos 2000
Problem:
I have following structure

c:\tomcat\webapps\Beer-v1\form.html
c:\tomcat\webapps\Beer-v1\WEB-INF\web.xml
c:\tomcat\webapps\Beer-v1\WEB-INF\classes\com\example\web\BeerSelect.class

When I start the tomcat service and try to run my web app via IE
http://localhost:8080/Beer-v1/form.html , it gives me resource could not be found error.
If while tomcat is running, I create another folder under webapps and copy my form.html there and invoke it via IE it works fine. But if I stop and restart the tomcat service this also stops working.

i even made a copy of one of example application that comes with tomcat, that also act the same.
I know, I am doing something wrong and not setting some configuration files.
Please help
