Tomcat?

Hmmm....
Run Tomcat in verbose mode and see if you can see an exception stack trace.

also where should i place my servlets to access them as
http://localhost:8080/servlet/myservlet
the book says in the server_root/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes
directory but there is no such classes dir. in WEB-INF

Yes create it. Compile your servlets and put them there. You will also need to create a web application deployment descriptor, and then create a servlet mapping to map your servlet to the URL you listed.
What book are you using?
