It installed on Win XP fine however the problem exists when running it. This is what the "startup.bat run" command produces:
D:\Tomcat4.1\bin>catalina run Using CATALINA_BASE: D:\Tomcat4.1 Using CATALINA_HOME: D:\Tomcat4.1 Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: D:\Tomcat4.1\temp Using JAVA_HOME: D:\j2sdk1.4.2_06 Oct 18, 2004 3:42:56 PM org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol init INFO: Initializing Coyote HTTP/1.1 on http-8080 Starting service Tomcat-Standalone Apache Tomcat/4.1.31 Oct 18, 2004 3:42:56 PM org.apache.commons.digester.Digester endElement SEVERE: End event threw exception java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.catalina.Container .......... end snippet ..............
Basically it does not see the file D:\Tomcat4.1\server\lib\catalina.jar where this class is defined. Both: CATALINA_HOME and JAVA_HOME are defined and point to correct directories.
Any help ideas?

Ok, I have to back off - it was all my fault - I put some *.jar files (from struts distribution) into JAVA_HOME\jre\lib\ext thinking it will let me avoid having struts files in every web-app. I was wrong. After removing un-needed stuff from extention directory all worked like a charm.
