I am using tomcat 4.1.24 and I am having problems deploying my webapp I place my application(foldercontaining jsp files, because I do not know how to work with wars) folder under the $CATALINA_HOME/webapps and add the following entry in my server.xml configuration file
<Context path="/intranet" docBase="/usr/local/tomcat4/webapps/intranet" debug="1" reloadable="true" crossContext="true">
<Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
prefix="localhost_intranet_log." suffix=".txt" timestamp="true"/>

</Context>
I enter http://localhost:8080/intranet in my browser and I get a big error message. I can see the examples app and execute it fine. If anyone could tell me what I am missing or what I need to do I would really thank you.

I believe that the "docBase" location is relative to the Tomcat install, so try changing the context tag to:
<Context path="/intranet" docBase="intranet" debug="1" reloadable="true" crossContext="true">
...
</Context>
