/admin not accessible in tomcat 5.5

I installed tomcat 5.5 and then separately downloaded admin application zip for 5.5. I copied conf\Catalina\localhost\admin.xml and the admin folder under the webapps. Still I am getting the error when I try to access the url thru' http://localhost:8080/admin/.

The error I see is "The requested resource (/admin/) is not available."

On googling I checked web.xml. There nothing seems to be wrong. Also the admin context is visible thru' http://localhost:8080/manager/. any suggestions?

On my Tomcat 5.5, admin is under the directory:
TOMCAT\server\webapps\
which also has the "manager" directory, instead of the
TOMCAT\webapps
directory where the standard distribution puts web apps.

Also my tomcat-users.xml file defines an "admin" role.
