Hi
I am unable to configure tomcat web server onto my system. I am using windows 98(jdk1.3) . I have made requisite changes in the xml-server file and have provided the path to jdk1.3 in the autoexe as well.
Need help
Thanks

We are going to need to know more - What happens when you execute the startup.bat batch file? (Incidently DO NOT click on the batch file, open a MSDOS Prompt and execute it from the command line in the /Tomcat/bin directory. That way you can see the errors.)
Have you read the documentation that accompanies the Tomcat distribution? Which version of Tomcat is this?
The most common problem with Tomcat on Win98 is running out of environment space. Tomcat sets some long environment variables so you need to increase the memory Win98 uses in MSDOS Prompt windows for environment space.
From a MSDOS prompt window, right-click on the upper left corner to get the properties dialog. On the Memory tab, set Initial Environment to 4096.

You need to have the MSDOS promp "in" the tomcat bin directory when you type
startup
(or have the tomcat bin directory on your PATH).
The command line interface uses "cd" for change directory so -
at the prompt type cd \tomcat\bin
(assuming you installed in the \tomcat directory
