Unable to start Tomcat with JSVC

I got some problems with starting Tomcat as a daemon on my linux box(SUSE
9 ES). When the startup script "tomcat5" is invoked I get this error:

line55: /home/tom5/jdk1.5.0_04/lib/tools.jar:: No such file or directory
jsvc error: No class specified
jsvc error: Cannot parse command line arguments

The path is ok. I double checked it in the navigator. I even put the all
permission to all users. What could be the problem?

Is your JAVA_HOME environment variable set?
Is it properly set for the user that the daemon will run under?
