Okay, so I got Tomcat working, and I've installed J2EE. I'm not sure which variables to set though. I'm running linux and my j2sdk is located at /usr/java/j2sdk1.3.0_02 . My j2ee is located at /usr/local/Java/j2sdkee1.3 . If anyone could help me set this up I would really appreciate it. I've just got a book on Servlets and JSP and I really want to try this stuff out. Thanks for any help.

Why do you want Tomcat???
For j2eesdk you do not need a Tomcat atleast in the Windows environment.

Tomcat is bundled with J2EE Reference Implementation.The j2eesdk installation takes care of providing a web service for your clients.

And in the same breath I'd mention that... If all you're doing is servlet development, you don't need J2EE. You just need Tomcat
I agree. Here's the link:
