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

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.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
