Hmm, that doesn't look right, the various variables should have real values (e.g. JRE_HOME: should point to an actual directory).

1.) Where do you have tomcat installed?
2.) What does the console say after using JRE_HOME:...... Can you post everything it prints out?
3.) Can you also post the contents of the log?

Using CATALINA_BASE: C:\tomcat\tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME: C:\tomcat\tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: C:\tomcat\tomcat\temp
Using JRE_HOME: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_05
in my mind the where are pointed are correspond location in my system.
after executing startup.bat tomcat dony launch.
after opening firefox:
the content of log is:
Description: The resource you are looking for does not have a handler associated with it.

Error Code: 0x80070002

Notification: MapRequestHandler

Module: IIS Web Core

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/

Physical Path: C:\inetpub\wwwroot

Logon User: Anonymous

Logon Method: Anonymous

Handler: Not yet determined

Most likely causes:

The file extension for the requested URL does not have a handler configured to process the request on the Web server.

Sounds like you might have an IIS server running on port 80.... Try changing the tomcat back to port 8080 and restarting

Nope , I mean the logs files under TOMCAT_HOME/log or CATALINA_HOME/log, you should see a bunch of log files there (catalina.*,
manager,*. admin.*, ....).

OK, for the 5.5.x version (since you have the logs), you need to psot the contents of the latest log (e.g admin.2008-09-14 etc).

OK, it sounds like your environment is a little topsy turvy. I'd recommend at this stage to back everything up and install Tomcat again from scratch following the instructions here and make sure you install in a directory structure _without_ spaces in it.
