Yet another Tomcat question

Whenever I start up Tomcat I get an error message amongst many other lines
of startup stuff that says: "ContextConfig[]: Missing application web.xml, using defaults only". Trouble is I HAVE a web.xml file in the WEB-INF folder within the catalina_home tree at catalina_home/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INBF. I have another one in the WEB-INF folder under the virtual name based site that I am trying to get Tomcat to handle servlets for. What could be causing tomcat not to find a web.xml file in the WEB-INF folder??? I am using Tomcat 4.06 running on Linux.

What is the directory structure for you app (include where your app resides)?

I am using Tomcat 4.06 running on Linux.
Why such an old version?

It looks to me like the server.xml file is to blame. It supposedly had the right info in it, but it doesn't. See my next post above, titled "confused on a higher plane" if you're interested.
