i am having troble in installing tomcat 4.1.12
my desktop has the folder Tomcat 4.1
my OS is win 98
my autoexec.bat is
set JAVA_HOME=C:\jdk1.3.0_02
set CLASSPATH=C:\jdk1.3.0_02\bin;C:\jdk1.3.0_02\lib;C:\jdk1.3.0_02\jre\lib
PATH= C:\orawin95\bin;c:\jdk1.3.0_02\bin

and still when i click on the startup.bat shortcut the Dos window says:
The CATALINA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly
This environment variable is needed to run this program
please could some tell me what should i do

If you have tomcat installed at C:\WINDOWS\DESKTOP\Tomcat 4.1 then your CATALINA_HOME setting should be like this
No Quotes.
It is always advisable to not have spaces in the path when dealing with java.
Setting CATALINA_HOME is optional. Don't set CATALINA_HOME and run tomcat from from BIN folder using startup command.

I agree. Here's the link:
