I'm trying to install tomcat 5.5 on my machine running windows Me, P II 250 MHz, java version is 1.5.0
Everytime I try to run the executable downloaded from

zip (pgp, md5)
tar.gz (pgp, md5)
Windows Executable (pgp, md5) // << this link here

on this page >>
what happens is...

failed to install Tomcat5 service
Check your settings and permissions
Ignore and continue anyway?

Thats the error I get. Everything goes ok until it reaches the jre\bin\client\jvm.dll thing....and after that everything goes awry.

I need to install it urgently, immediate help would be greatly appreciated.
