Hello Friends,
I have Tomcat 4.1 installed on windows 2K with JDK 1.3.
I have set the CATALINA_HOME.
Is it necessary to set any classpath sor starting the server.
I'm getting the following exception :
Please guide me ..

Using CATALINA_BASE: E:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1
Using CATALINA_HOME: E:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: E:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\temp
Using JAVA_HOME: D:\jdk1.3

On Googling i found a solution to reinstall tomcat in a directory path with no spaces in the name.

I'll try that in my home tonight..
