No Response After Deployment

I moved my dev env from one computer to another using Tomcat4.1.30. Identical server.xml and I deployed my application to webapps folder the same way. It worked in my original computer but in the new computer, there is no response from http://localhost:8080 or from the example app. Tomcat started with no error message and identical message as the old computer. What could I have forgotten to do? In short, I deployed all app jar files to webapps/myapp/WEB-INF/lib and also deployed my web.xml in WEB-INF with identical tomcat version 4.1.30. Thanks for any help !

If there is no response from localhost:8080 I would really question whether Tomcat is actually running. How did you start it?
On windows I would look at the Task Manager to see if there is a process for it?
Does this new computer have the JAVA_HOME and CATALINA_HOME variables in the environment?
Has this new computer ever had an earlier version of Tomcat installed? How about the Java version?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
