You will probably get more response to this in the Apache/Tomcat forum. I will move it there for you.

When you install Tomcat 4.x, the Windows installer version of the installation will ask you if you want to install Tomcat as an NT service.

If you've already installed it, it's up to you if you want to uninstall and re-install. I would

Install Tomcat 4 as service
on Windows NT/2000/XP
ensure CATALINA_HOME and JAVA_HOME are appropriatly set as 'System variables' in the 'Environment Variables' section of the System control pannel.
run this command line to install tomcat as a service (all on one line):
"%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\tomcat.exe"
-install "Apache Tomcat"
"%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\classic\jvm.dll"
-Djava.class.path="%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\bootstrap.jar;%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar"
-Dcatalina.home="%CATALINA_HOME%"
-Xrs
-start org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap -params start
-stop org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap -params stop
-out "%CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stderr.log"
it will be an automatic startup service but it will not automatically start until the next system reboot.
start the service with this command line:
net start "Apache Tomcat"
you may stop the service with this command line:
net stop "Apache Tomcat"
and you can uninstall the Tomcat service with this command line:
"%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\tomcat.exe" -uninstall "Apache Tomcat"
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
