Tomcat, IIS, Virtual Directory, ...

Hello Guys,

I just finished installing Tomcat on my Windows Webserver 2003. I am able to access the Tomcat home page
using http://localhost:8040 (i need 8080 to be left unmodified).
Tomcat is installed in C:\Tomcat. A virtual directory (Tomcat) that points to c:\Tomcat\bin\win32\i386\ was created
as well. An ISAPI_Filter (Tomcat) which points to file c:\Tomcat\bin\win32\i386\isapi_redirector2.dll also.
I copied the directory JForum as subdirectory to c:\Tomcat\webapps.

The problem is now that I am not able to access the JForum\install.jsp installation routine.

I have some pronblems in understanding the relationship between the ISAPI-Filter, virtual directory, workersFile and other settings.Can anyone give me a hint where I can find an installation guide or other documentation that would help to solve this problem?

I am looking forward to your reply,
