Hi, I'm running Redhat 7.0 I've downloaded and installed jakarta-tomcat-3.2.1, but I'm having a little trouble configuring it to run standalone without Apache running. The instructions make it seem easy, but they kind of tail off at the end. Following the user's guide this is what I did: I unzipped the files. They are in the following directory: /tomcat/jakarta-tomcat-3.2.1 . I use j2sdk1.3 and it's path is here: /usr/java/jdk1.3.0_02 . Following the instructions I changed the directory to /tomcat/jakarta-tomcat-3.2.1 , and then I executed the following command: TOMCAT_HOME=tomcat/jakarta-tomcat-3.2.1; export TOMCAT_HOME It then said to change the JAVA_HOME variable to point to the root directory of the jdk hierarchy. I did this with the following command: JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.3.0_02 (I'm not sure that is right?) Finally it said add the Java interpreter to my PATH environment variable. I didn't do anything here, because I wasn't sure explicitly what I was to do (the directions didn't say). When I try to run Tomcat I get the following message: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/tomcat/startup/Tomcat The directions make it sound pretty simple to configure, and I'm sure it is. Normally I'd start messing around with things, but I thought perhaps I should ask for help first. So if anyone could point me in the right direction. I'm pretty sure my only problem is with the PATH variable, seeing as though I didn't set it. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks alot for any help!

Be sure each %TOMCAT_HOME%/LIB "jar" file is in the CLASSPATH assignment..... this should be done for you in the start.sh script. be sure TOMCAT_HOME is set properly.... review the script.
