Tomcat Startup problem

Hi all,

I installed tomcat 5.0.8 in windows 2000 and jdk 1.5. I had set the classpath, path and java_home in the enviornmrnt variables.

set PATH=E:\Ant\Jdk1.5\bin;%PATH%
set JAVA_HOME=E:\Ant\Jdk1.5
set CLASSPATH=.;E:\Ant\Tomcat5.0\common\lib\servlet-api.jar;E:\Ant\Tomcat5.0\common\lib\jsp-api.jar;E:\Ant\Servlets+JSP;..;..\..;E:\Ant\jakarta-struts-1.2.4\lib\struts.jar

Once I had started the tomcat, one screen appears and some text has been scrolled down and vanished.

in that screen the below is the last line in it:
at org.apache.catalina.Bootstrap.start(Bootstrap.java:287)
at org.apache.catalina.Bootstrap.main(Bootstrap.java:287)

What will be the error? how to resolve it?

Start Tomcat from within a DOS Prompt, and set the window scroll buffer to something big, 1000 lines or so. That way you'll see all the messages.

If you don't mind can you tell me how to set the window scroll buffer to 1000.

In MS-DOS prompt, I having following:
Option - Buffer Size(50),Number of Buffers(4)
Layout - Screen Buffer Size (Width - 80, Height - 300), Window Size(Width - 80, Height - 25)

Where to change? I am using Windows 2000
