Deployment error in Apache Tomcat.

I'm currently trying to develop a web application in Netbeans 6.1, using Apache Tomcat 6.0. Even when I freshly create a whole new application (enterprise app), and deploy it, it gives me a "Failed to deploy application at context path /Olympics-war" error.

I'm not quite sure what I've configured wrong; I've set Olympics-war's context path to "/Olympics-war", and followed the textbook's graphic-aided steps assiduously. Yet I come smack face-to with this error, and there isn't even any CODE in the project at the moment.

I'd deeply appreciate any help if it's possible. Thanks!

Please post the entire exception stacktrace. Also, what does your Olympics-war contain? Do you have a WEB-INF folder inside the WAR? And does the WEB-INF have a web.xml inside it?
