You must visit the following link through which i could succed to work tomcat for me:
The Java_Home and Tomcat_Home environment variable you will have to set by editing in tomcat.bat file which is available in the \bin directory of tomcat. And if you are working under Windows 98 then you will have to set its memory setting in DOS as discussed in the following link:

Tomcat uses a unique variable name JAVA_HOME before starting up. This variable HAS to be set up from the window in which you are starting Tomcat.
Suppose you have jdk installed in C: drive, then, do the following on the command window.....
set JAVA_HOME=c:\jdk1.3
Then call startup. Tomcat will start fine.

Prasad
