If you like, I can email you a document I wrote for myself when I was learning about installing/configuring/using Tomcat on Win NT.

Let me know, my email's in the profile.

You'll need to have handy your "JAVA-HOME" environment variable which is... (I'll assume that you are using MS-Windows instead of a Mac or Unix system) the path (DIR) in which your JDK is installed (D:\jdk1.3.1 in my case).
Then you need to set the other environment variable "TOMCAT-HOME" to the DIR (path) in which your Tomcat got installed. In may case, d:\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.2.
