tomcat included examples not working?

Hello All,
I've recently installed tomcat and have zero problems getting it up and running and can access the main index page at localhost:8080 but when I click on the jsp or servelt examples link off the main page I get this error:
Apache Tomcat/4.0.6 - HTTP Status 404 - /examples/jsp/
type Status report
message /examples/jsp/
description The requested resource (/examples/jsp/) is not available.
in my access log there's something about the context. I"m frustrated becasue this is a fresh install where I've messed with nothing. I'm running os x 10.2 (Jaguar) but am doing everything via command line. I really would love some help as I've wasted loads of time just trying to get the defaul examples working. Thanks in advance,

Does the servlet examples work?
If they work. Did you set up the CATALINA_HOME variable?

neither the servlet nor jsp examples work. I'm still stuck trying to figure this out. Here's what's in my log file:

yes, I did set up the CATALINA_HOME and have double checked it's the correct value.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools

It's not a secret anymore!
