I have my jdk at c:\jdk1.3 and tomcat at c:\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.19
When I run startup in c:\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.19\bin from the windows98 environment it says �the JAVA_HOME environment variable not defined.this environment variable is required to run the program�
I opened startup.bat from MS-DOS and added to the top, �set JAVA_HOME= c:\jdk1.3�
I again run startup from windows.i get the message that �out of environment space� several times and also in the end �bad command or file name�
Please help me install tomcat.

upgrade your OS to something that can cope with the larger amount of environment space required.
Windows 98 doesn't cut it, it's way too old and out of support...

Win98 can run Tomcat just fine, you just have to change the setting in the DOS Console window that allocates space for environment variables. Tomcat does a LOT of fiddling with environment variables and the default value is too small.
Go to the Javaranch forum specifically for Tomcat and search older posts for Win98.
