Working with new tomcat server

Okay, I changed from tomcat 4.0 to tomcat 3.2.1 and here's the situation: I'm able to compile servlet code, so I must have set the classpath correct for that. I'm able to startup the server fine. But like before, when I go to open a browser and type in http://localhost/servlet/HelloWWW3/ I get this.
I'm prompted that the page is not available offline, and given the choice to connect or stay offline. When I choose stay offline (No connection from the computer I'm working on) the page then comes up that says: Webpage unavailable offline. I'm so close to actually having this thing work. If I could just figure out why the browser won't read my page, I'd be set!

Dont know the whys and wherefores but if you click connect it should work. ie your pc goes and gets a connection with itself on localhost.
