I've installed Tomcat 4.0.. and it's in c:\Program Files\Jakarta Tomcat 4.0.. When i run the startup.bat inside bin it gives me the following error..
Cannot find the file 'c:\jdk1.2.1;bin\java'(or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and all required libraries are available..
My autoexec.bat is as follows:
set classpath = c:\JSDK2.0\lib;
set classpath = %CLASSPATH%;c:\JSDK2.0\lib\jsdk.jar;
set JAVA_HOME = c:\jdk1.2.1;
set JAKARTA_HOME=c:\Program Files\Jakarta Tomcat 4.0;
set path = c:\jdk1.2.1\bin;c:\jdk1.2.1\lib;c:\jdk1.2.1\lib\tools.jar;c:\jdk1.2.1\jre\lib\ext;
Pls help me.. Thanks in advance..

Looks to me like it is the ; in the line setting JAVA-HOME that is causing you trouble.
Also, I STRONGLY recommend not installing any Java program in a directory that contains spaces, it is the source of endless trouble.
Are you sure they want JAKARTA_HOME ? In the beta tests it was CATALINA_HOME.
