Deploying with Tomcat5.5 and Eclipse3.0???

Hi, I'm new at Tomcat/Eclipse/J2EE in general, and I've been trying for a while now to deploy my servlets and Struts/Tapestry applications using Tomcat 5.5 and JDK1.4.2_06. The only pages that ever display are the Tomcat welcome page and servlets that I place in the [TOMCAT_INSTALL]\shared\classes folder. These same servlets never run when I place them in the [TOMCAT_INSTALL]\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes folder. Even when they do successfully display after copying them to the [TOMCAT_INSTALL]\shared\classes folder, errors are generated in the log files:

SEVERE: invoker: Cannot allocate servlet instance for path /servlet/hello.helloservlet
javax.servlet.ServletException: Error allocating a servlet instance
at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapper.allocate(
at org.apache.catalina.servlets.InvokerServlet.serveRequest(
at org.apache.catalina.servlets.InvokerServlet.doGet(
at javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(
at javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(
~~~~~~~~etc etc.....................~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The invoker servlet and servlet-mapping tags are uncommented in the conf directory; copied from the web.xml file in this directory:

The Struts and Tapestry applications on the other hand (developed with Eclipse 3.0) just never run.
I don't know what else to do, can anyone help? Thanks
I agree. Here's the link:
