i just download tomcat5.5, but i dont know how to use it, it has several folders like "bin,conf,logs,shared".
i have JRE 1.7 installed in my system, OS is vista.
i clicked on startup.bat in bin folder a window appears for a nanosecond & then disappears, nothing happens.
i will be glad if someone helps me out.

The fact that "nothing happens" might be a good sign. If there were problems, you should see error messages. Then again, if you don't have a terminal window open and aren't starting Tomcat in it, you likely wouldn't see the error messages.

What are you planning to do with Tomcat? I use it within Eclipse as the server on which to run my attempts at developing server applications. Setting up Tomcat to work with Eclipse is well documented in beginning JSP/Servlet tutorials. So what are you planning to do with it? You might try Googling your intended use to see what advice or tutorials you can find.

Always learning Java, currently using Eclipse on Fedora.
