Maybe I am not understanding you.. what is in the tom directory under tomcat folder? the tom subdirectory is a new one in that its never created in regular install..
I think you meant to not have a tom directory within your paths

Thanks for joining JavaRanch, but could you just take a quick look at the naming policy and edit your profile accordingly.
Also, moving this to the Tomcat forum...
