I have installed preconfigured Tomcat package 5.5.9 from coreservlets.com and changed the directory name as Tomcat 5.5 under C: drive.

When I try to run the start.bat from install-dir/bin or using bin/catalina run from command prompt I get this long error message. Can any of you tell me how to solve this problem. I forgot to tell you that I have J2SDK 1.4.2 installed on my C: drive. I have also set two environment variables in Windows XP
1. JAVA_HOME c:\j2sdk1.4.2_08
2. TOMCAT_HOME c:\Tomcat 5.5

Did you install the "compat" package that is required to run tomcat 5 with SDK 1.4?
As recommended in the coreservlets tutorial here.

Thanks for replying William, I have got a compatibility to be installed with jdk 1.4.2 but it is a zip file and I do not know where to extract it and that has not been mentioned in the tutorial itself.

In the meanwhile, I have installed j2se 1.5.0_09 and I have changed the Java_home system variable and I am now able to run Tomcat server and jsp files execute on it....

Extract it from the same directory that were in when you extracted Tomcat.
It's got the same directory structure.
