I'm hoping for some help regarding the basics of setting up Tomcat and what versions of Java I can use.
My system is windows XP home.
The tomcat version is 4.1.12.
The JDK is 1.3.
How do I define environment variables for JAVA_HOME and CATALINA_HOME?
Thanks in advance

In Windows XP use the Control Panel -> System dialog -> Advanced tab -> Environment Variables
to get be able to set your environment variables such as CATALINA_HOME
Some versions of Tomcat 4.1 require Java 1.4 while othes will run under 1.3
However you might as well install the latest Java SDK.
I agree. Here's the link:
