the easiest thing to do is to take that servlet.jar file and just put it in your:
all the jar classes put in the ext directory will always be recognized by the compiler.

i am also encountering the same problem
and here is my way of resolving that
start tomcat
and then residing in the /classes(or your own webapp directory) again specify the classpath of the servlet.jar that is
set classpath=d:\tomcat\common\lib\servlet.jar (or wat ever the path may be)
hope this will help

Just a suggestiong -- but you're more likely to get help on your problem if you give it a descriptive title. Instead of "Pls Help!" try something like "Problem compiling servlets".
Welcome to the JavaRanch! I hope you find it a very useful site.
