Error when starting tomcat 5.0.25

Hi there,

Tomcat 5.0.25 on WinXP gives a lot of errors at statup. Before I had tomcat 4.1.30 on c:\Tomcat 4.1 , which was running fine.
I uninstalled version 4.1 and installed tomcat 5.0.25, I changed the environment variable CATALINA_HOME accordingly (CATALINA_HOME = C:\Tomcat 5.0) .

When starting up tomcat 5.0.25, the log contains the following two errors:

2004-06-18 18:21:43 StandardContext[/admin]Marking servlet action as unavailable
2004-06-18 18:21:43 StandardContext[/admin]Servlet /admin threw load() exception
javax.servlet.ServletException: Error instantiating servlet class org.apache.webapp.admin.ApplicationServlet
at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapper.loadServlet(
----- Root Cause -----
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/beanutils/Converter
at java.lang.Class.getDeclaredConstructors0(Native Method)
at java.lang.Class.privateGetDeclaredConstructors(
at java.lang.Class.getConstructor0(

Can somebody help please..thanks in advance
