You're not giving us much to work with..

What have you tried?
In detail, describe your attempt at installing it.
Also, describe how you tested the installation and what happened.

Asking people on a forum to walk you through the installation of an app server is asking a lot. If you're going to do that, you should at least demonstrate that you've put some effort into it first. A good way to do this is to put some effort into describing what you've done and what went wrong.

Does the normal Tomcat initial screen show? How about the sample jsp applications, do they work?
How are you starting Tomcat?
