Tomcat JSP Example link dosn't work

I've at long last managed to get Tomcat starting on XP.
when I go to http://localhost:8080/
I get the front page along with the JSP Example hyperlinks. When I click on them, it dosn't go to the example page but ends up at a web site called saying "15 matches for localhost:8080".
I've also tried doing a helloWorld jsp file. When I try and run it, the broswer load bar gets to half way and no page is loaded.
Where is it going wrong?
I'm using j2sdk1.4.0_01
and jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12-LE-jdk14
CATALINA HOME is set to:
CLASS PATH is set to:
JAVA HOME is set to:
PATH is set to:

This is weird.
I still can't get the Tomcat JSP Examples loading. But I have managed to get the Hello World example working.
I saved this jsp file into a folder called begjsp-ch01, which sits in the Webapps folder.
This is what I put into the browser window:
And hey presto! I got a screen saying H4ello World the date is.. the time is...
COOL - it's only taken me 25 hours to do this.
I agree. Here's the link:
