difficulty or may need to adjust browser setting.

I installed Tomcat under the following dir
I copied jsp files into dir:-

On Win 95 and Win 98, you have to change an environment variable. The
problem is often caused by the long classpath variables commonly used in
java programs. Add the following line to your CONFIG.SYS file and then
reboot your machine:
SHELL=c:\ c:\ /e:2048 /p
BTW, the /e:2048 indicates the number of bytes to allocate for
environment space. If 2048 isn't enough, try /e:4096 or even higher.
This should fix your problem of Out of environmental space

u can also increase the environment space from the dos prompt.
when u open the window (dos prompt), click on the ms-dos icon on the top-left corner of the window and select properties from the menu.
select the memory tab and change the environment space in the 'Initial Environment' drop-down box.
now go to ur tomcat bin folder and start tomcat.
I agree. Here's the link:
