I have a problem. After i install apache tomcat 4.1 that i downloaded from the homepage itself. after i click the .exe file and install it. I click the configure tomcat after that it showed me a message saying missing .exe file.
Is it because wins98, there is a different way to setup my apache tomcat? or it's because of the installation file? hope that someone can help me on this issue.

It has been a LONG time since I used Tomcat on Win98 but as I recall, Tomcat likes to use LOTS of environment variables and you have to increase the memory allocation for enviornment variables to at least 4096 bytes to get Tomcat to work.

I also suspect that the exe installer was never intended to be used with Win98 and that you would have better luck unpacking the zip file version.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
