You need to do a little more than this:
remove the semi-colon ; from the end
of your classpath line

set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;c:\java\lib\tools.jar
Also, your JDK should be 1.2 or later.

Open a MSDOS prompt window, change to the tomcat/bin directory and then execute startup.bat, that way you can see error messages. On win 98 you must increase the default space for Environment settings in MSDOS environment - use the properties dialog you get from right-clicking in the upper left corner of a MSDOS prompt window, memory tab, Initial environment setting. I use 3072.
The reason being that Tomcat sets a LOT of environment variables and needs the space.
