What is wrong with my env. setting?

I have write a connection pool and a DB manager with JDBC. I run them without any problem in loading from and storing into Oracle DB in VisualAge for Java WebSphere Test Environment. But when I deployed my code into Tomcat3.3, the DBManager can not find a driver in "Class.forName(oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver)". I have set my classpath in in "Control Panel/System/Advanced/Environrmental Variables" in Windows 2000. The Exception caught at "Class.forName(oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver)" is ClassNotFoundException.
What is wrong with my environment setting? Can any one help me? Thanks

The classpath I added is "D:\Oracle\Ora81\jdbc\lib\classes111.zip"

"gshu",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp .
We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please re-register and select a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.

Thanks all guy. Yes I have got it by renaming the classes111.zip into classes111.jar!
Thanks all again!
I will change my name into the qualified one next time!
