Tomcat startup

Dear All,
I m a beginner in Tomcat and is trying to install Tomcat 4.1.12. I have previously installed Tomcat 3.3 and also 4.0. Both worked fine except for encoding problems with Japanese characters. The current version is also working fine except for a strange problem that I am facing right now.
When I start my Tomcat it goes in the digester classes and starts to read all the XML files in my server. when I say it reads means it goes through each and every tag in each and every XML file in the server starting with server.xml.
I am sorry but I am not able to figure where I have commited the mistake due to which this is happening. By the way server starts fine but takes 2-8 minutes depending on the number of XML files I have. Also the same configuration is working fine on the other machine I have. Is it something to do with Xerces or else???
I am using JDK 1.4 and also have Apache installed on my Win NT 4.0 machine. If anyone can help me with this I will be greatful.

Does Tomcat work better installed on LINUX than on Windows ?
I agree. Here's the link:
