this is the display...
I am tryin to run startup.bat from the webapp dir in my case it is equinox

C:\Source\equinox-1.0\equinox>%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\startup.bat

'C:\tomcat' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I found a part of the answer at
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/tomcat-users/200406.mbox/%3C5.1.0.14.2.20040628215107.030d4eb8@mail.trimm.nl%3E

but this is not helping me

Do you have spaces in the name of the directory where you installed Tomcat? What do you get if you type in the following command:

echo %CATALINA_HOME%

If you have spaces in the directory name, try putting double quotes around it:

"%CATALINA_HOME%"\bin\startup.bat
