Hi all,
I've down loaded jackarta-tomcat.zip from the net, I've a win98 OS, and unzipped it. But I can't find webapps/root/web-inf/classes path. my "webapps" folder doesn't have any directories under it. Do I have to create it?
Thanx

It sounds like you got a corrupt zip file, or your unzip program did not work properly. After you unzip it you should find many folders under the c:\jakarta-tomcat\webapps If there is nothing there, you should try unzipping it again or maybe redownload it. By having an empty webapps directory you are losing a lot of useful material.

I hope its helps, feel free to email me noahcarroll@juno.com

Thanks Noah,
But beleive it or not, now it has these folders !!!
I think there's something wrong and I should try downloading. By the way, when I type startup in my dos prompt, how do I know tomcat started properly. I'm getting the following:
C:\tomcat\bin>startup
Starting tomcat in new window
Using classpath: ..\classes;..\lib\webserver.jar;..\lib\jasper.jar;..\lib\xml.ja
r;..\lib\servlet.jar;\lib\tools.jar
C:\tomcat\bin>
Am I missing something, becuase when I type http://localhost:8080/ in my address bar I get an "ERROR 207:The Required URL Not Retrieved"
