I have heard that configuring Tomcat to work with Windows 98 is difficult. If it is difficult that should not be a problem but instead a learning experience. Can anyone please tell me in advance if there is any functionality that Tomcat offers that Windows 98 cannot support?
Thank you in advance.

Tomcat works fine with Windows 98.

The only problem I had with Tomcat was the tomcat-apache.conf file(created by tomcat) had an error "AddType test/jsp .jsp" instead of "AddType text/jsp .jsp" so I edited and incuded the tomcat.conf file in apache's http.conf file instead of the recommended tomcat-apache.conf file. They might have fixed it by now. I also had a problem with apache itself. I had to set the ServerName. The documetation said I didnt have to. I originally set it to localhost. Then I got a domain name so I changed it.
I must admit it took a few days to get it right, but it was a learning experince.
